Scholarship Fund for Swedish Youth Abroad

The Scholarship Fund for Swedish Youth Abroad has been offering a scholarship since 2018 for young talents to gain international experience by joining the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in London for a period of 12 months. 

About the foundation

The Scholarship Fund For Swedish Youth Abroad was founded in 1937 as part of the 50 year anniversary of 'Sveriges Allmänna Utrikeshandelsförening' (Swedish Association of Foreign Trade).

The foundation grants scholarships for studies in Sweden or Swedish schools abroad, for Swedish language summer courses, for TISUS tests, as well as for internships at Swedish Chambers of Commerce abroad and for Swedish School Associations.

Insight into the UK business environment

"Being a scholar gives you a unique possibility of working with some of the most exciting Swedish companies in the world, some of the most talented people within different fields, and gives you a great insight into the UK business environment."
