At its 114th Annual General Meeting (AGM), the Swedish Chamber of Commerce welcomed a new cohort of young talents to the SCC Scholarship Programme, offering them the unique opportunity to join the Chamber for a full year in London – the world’s leading financial centre, and Europe’s business capital.
Dating back several decades, the SCC Scholarship Programme has served as a launchpad for many successful alumni careers. At the official scholarship ceremony for the 2021/22 programme, which took place at the AGM on 3 June, three scholarships were provided to talented and creative young professionals, offering them twelve months' experience at the Chamber's secretariat in London.
The scholarships have been made available by partnerships with and generous donations from the Scholarship Fund for Swedish Youth Abroad, Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn Scholarship, and the SCC Scholarship, funded by its members.

“The SCC Scholarship Programme has seen the launch of many successful alumni careers over the years. With the UK’s exit from the EU and the new regulations it has entailed, we have worked hard with our partnering foundations to ensure the future success of the scholarship programme. We are excited to be welcoming a new cohort of scholars, seeing them grow, and recognising how they contribute to the development of our organisation as well,” says Peter Sandberg, Managing Director at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce.
