Welcome to Lakselaget!

Lakselaget is made up of a vibrant group of professional women who are interested in contemporary Norwegian issues and all things Norwegian. 

Lakselaget offers scholarships to Norwegian students who wish to study in Minnesota or the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks or Minnesotans desiring to study in Norway. It is also open to providing grants to Minnesota professional women who have the opportunity to intern in Norway and, of course, to Norwegians interning in Minnesota. The grants are meant to supplement wages lost for experience gained. Learn more under Who We Are and Foundation and Scholarship Info.

Lee Svitak Dean is the longtime food editor at the Star Tribune, where she turned the Taste section into a national award winner. 

She's the co-author of "The Great Minnesota Cookie Book, which is based on 15 years of the popular newspaper holiday cookie contest. And she's 90 percent Norwegian, which finds her deep into sandbakkels and lefse this time of year.

Lee will be selling and signing her book at this event!
