The Saven Foundation Scholarship

The Saven Foundation Scholarship is made possible thanks to a contribution from Inger and Bjorn Saven. The scholarship is intended for young talents who demonstrate a robust entrepreneurial spirit. Winning candidates are given the opportunity to spend a full year in London and gain valuable international experience as part of the team at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK (SCC).

About the scholarship

Given its role as Europe’s business capital, London is an exceptional place to nurture talents. Therefore, The Saven Foundation Scholarship was established to support the SCC in providing students from all over Sweden the opportunity to grow, learn, and develop in this unique environment.

Saven Foundation Scholarship is intended to be the groundwork for a lasting and fruitful partnership for everyone involved.


To apply for this scholarship, you must have recently graduated from a Swedish university or equivalent institution.

Due to visa requirements, applicants must not have turned 26 years of age on or before 1 May 2024.


The period of duty at the Chamber spans from 6 June 2024 to 19 June 2025.


Applications for the 2024/2025 scholarship are now open. Please send your CV and personal letter in English to Fredrik Warneryd, Chief Executive at the SCC, via e-mail, latest by 8 February 2024.
