Brittingham Viking Crest

The Brittingham Viking Organization is an international scholarship organization based at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, composed of past or current recipients of the Brittingham Viking Scholarship. The group, which traces its earliest roots back to 1952, started as a scholarship for Scandinavian men to study at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and travel throughout the United States. The organization has since expanded to allow select students from the University of Wisconsin - Madison to travel to Nordic countries as students. The American members of the organization select these eight scholars every year for travel scholarships to Scandinavia in either Copenhagen, Denmark, Oslo, Norway, Stockholm, Sweden or Helsinki, Finland. The European members select seven scholars for either year-long or summer scholarships to the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
