Application form for Snorri West
We are working on an online application form that will allow you to complete everything over several sessions, saving your work, and then submitting the application directly from this site. In the meantime, please see the 2019 pdf application for examples of what information will be required.
The application deadline is February 21, 2020
Please note: you do not need to know of ancestors who emigrated to North America nor be aware of any relatives currently living there, but any information you can provide will help our volunteer genealogists identify, locate, contact and facilitate in-person meetings. All Icelanders have some family in North America!
Also note: you will need to have a reference submitted directly from the person writing the reference to either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This reference must be in our hands by the application deadline of February 21, 2020.
In-person/video chat interviews are tentatively scheduled for February 28, 2020. You will know later that day if you are offered a position on the trip. Payment, in full, of the equivalent of $2,400 CAD will need to be paid to the Snorri Foundation account at Arion Bank no later than March 16, 2020 to hold your place in the program. We will maintain a wait list in case a participant is unable to go.
The Snorri West Program is a collaborative effort between the Snorri Foundation in Iceland and the Icelandic National League of North America www.inlofna.org
