Thanks to Scandinavia (TTS)

TTS is the brainchild of Richard Netter and the late Victor Borge. It was established in 1963, as a commitment to spreading the story of rescue and expressing gratitude to Scandinavian citizens for their commitment to protecting and rescuing Jews during the Holocaust. Thanks To Scandinavia (TTS) programs have provided scholarships to more than 3,000 Scandinavian and Bulgarian medical graduate students to fund study in the United States and Israel . In 2006, at Mount Sinai Beth Israel and in conjunction with The Louis Armstrong Center for Music & Medicine, there are four yearly scholarship awards available. Two for students and two for faculty participating from the following countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.
Training will take place under the Louis Armstrong Program for music therapy training at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City . Supervision will be required for student scholars.
There will be an inaugural training on October 16th, 17th and 18th 2006 at Mount Sinai Beth Israel for all members of the Steering Committee. This one time orientation will provide opportunities for staff to present their individualized programs and principles. As well, the committee will develop a mission statement and objectives that will satisfy the vision of unified program efforts for student and faculty scholars in the coming years.
