The Lois Roth Endowment for American Scholars
In 1957-58 a U.S. graduate student from Columbia University, Lois Roth, came to Sweden on a Fulbright grant to Uppsala University in the field of Scandinavian studies.  After a decade with the American Scandinavian Foundation – where she founded and ran a path-breaking Ford program for forty of Finland's intellectual leaders – she joined the US Information Agency in 1966. She served her first five years in Cultural Affairs in Iran, primarily as the Director of the Iran-America Society, then served in Italy and France and in various positions in Washington. In her last position, she headed USIA's division of Fine and Performing Arts. Ms. Roth died of breast cancer in 1986 and the Lois Roth Endowment was created to commemorate her life and work by supporting selected people who work in the places and fields of enquiry that she loved.

The Lois Roth Endowment awards are granted annually to American Fulbright student grantees in Sweden and other countries whose research focuses on the arts, humanities or social sciences.
Based in Washington DC, the Lois Roth Endowment, supports exchanges across national and cultural boundaries to enhance international communication and understanding. It cooperates internationally with several Fulbright Commissions, particularly those in the Nordic countries, and also awards prizes in Cultural Diplomacy, Translation and Architectural History.
