The Vorländer Scholarship

In March 2018, the Duke made a generous donation to the newly-created Westarctica Civilian Corps. This donation helped the creation of the Corps and sponsored membership costs for ten Westarctican citizens who would not have otherwise been able to cover their initiation fee.
