The groups of Latvian male and female student corporations in North America in 2005 arranged a visit of the Rector of the University of Latvia Ivars Lācis (2000–2007) in eight Latvian centres in Canada and the USA.

During the visit, funds were donated for Ceļamaize (“Bread for the Journey”) scholarships to be granted to UL students and called “North- American Corporation Group scholarships”.

The scholarships were granted on March 30, 2006, in UL Senate Hall by the representative of the Latvian male and female students corporations in North America Māra Sātiņa-Newsom residing in Riga.


In the academic year 2006/2007, EUR 2 100 were donated and three Ceļamaize (“Bread for the Journey”) scholarships were granted to the students Linda Glūzda, Līga Mūrniece, and Zanda Vītoliņa.

We greatly appreciate the generous support to education and development!
