Tom Wilhelmsen's Foundation
The foundation is a private and independent foundation founded by ship owner Tom Wilhelmsen’s gift certificate in 1965. The Foundation's home is Nøtterøy.
The Foundation’s purpose is to distribute gifts or contributions to institutions, groups or individuals to support any measure of a scientific, social, humanitarian and cultural nature, as well as by scholarships or similar, to cater for performing artists and encourage the ability of youth or others to continue their education, study or research. Since the foundation's start in 1965, we have awarded more than 3,000 scholarships.
We are proud supporters of a professorship in maritime research, the organisation "Right to play", as well as "Talent Norge". In addition the foundation contributes to "Akuttmedisinske studentforeninger" throughout Norway. The medical advisory board consists of Christen Peder Dahl and Torgeir Wyller.
The Board of the Foundation shall consist of one to four members elected by the general meeting.
