The Anders Wall Foundation reinstates scholarship in partnership with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce

6 December 2019

We are proud to announce that the Anders Wall Foundation is reinstating its its London scholarship in partnership with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in 2020. The scholarship enables a talented young student to spend a year with the Chamber's team in London and earn invaluable experience in an international business environment.

The foundation was setup in connection with Dr. Anders Wall’s birthday back in 1981, as a donation from senior people from Swedish business and culture to support causes close to Wall’s heart, in particular the support of ambitious and aspirational young talent. Since its formation the foundation has donated in excess of SEK 60M.

Dr. Wall is a long-standing Member of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK and an Honorary Vice President of its Council. He has supported the Chamber and the Swedish-British business community for a long time, not least through his foundation’s scholarship scheme. Now, the Anders Wall Foundation will be reinstating its scholarship programme to the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in 2020.

“Dr. Wall was the first ever scholarship donor to the Chamber, and has since the early 1980s and through the decades provided support, stability and entrepreneurial spirit to the Chamber. We are very grateful, and excited to welcome the scholarship back, and to work closely with the foundation in developing young talent”, says Peter Sandberg, Managing Director of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK.
