    Iceland and The American-Scandinavian Foundation
    Internet Resources Icelanders have been included in the exchange programs of the American-Scandinavian Foundation since 1919. In 1940, The Icelandic-American Society (Íslensk-ameríska félagið) was established as a sister organization of ASF, and Iceland has been an active and integral part of the ASF since that time. H.E. Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, President of Iceland, graciously serves as the ASF's Patron from Iceland.
    Exchange Activities
    Over the years, more than 27,000 young Americans and Scandinavians have participated in ASF's exchange programs of study, research and practical training. Collaborating in this effort in Iceland is The Icelandic-American Society.
    The ASF provided over $70,000 in funding to 11 Icelanders for study or research in the United States and to three Americans for study in Iceland during the 2007-2008 academic year. Many of these grants were made from ASF’s Thor Thors Icelandic Fund. New monies are raised for the Thors Thors Fund each year through efforts coordinated by Sigurdur Helgason. Over the years, donors to the fund have included Icelanders and Americans interested in Iceland, as well as both the American and Icelandic governments.

Culture in Iceland It was the love of freedom and adventure that inspired many Vikings to make their homes in Iceland in the ninth century AD. Icelanders are of Scandinavian origin, with some early mixing of Celtic blood. Freedom and respect for the individual are still at the heart of twentieth-century Iceland - a parliamentary democracy and a showcase of political stability. Visitors will find that Iceland is largely a classless society and that it has a strong literary tradition. A deep interest in Iceland's cultural heritage has been an inseparable part of the Icelandic character and identity for generations. It stretches as far back as the Icelandic sagas - medieval literary works which are regarded as classics in world literature. Creative and performing arts are flourishing in Iceland and it is remarkable to see such a thriving cultural scene in a country of only 300,000. Icelandic culture is just as diverse as the landscape. There is far more to Iceland than just unspoiled nature. Iceland is also famous for its writers, composers, actors, and artists and musicians - some of which include Halldor Laxness, Jón Leifs, Kristján Jóhannson, Sigur Rós and Björk. Attractions like the Reykjavik Art Festival, the museums and the first-class restuarants draw visitors from all around the globe.
