A warm welcome: The new cohort of bright scholars ready for a year with the SCC

6 June 2024

At the 117th Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 6 June, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK welcomed six bright young talents to join our 12-month scholarship programme. This offers them a unique chance to work with our team In London, Europe’s business capital and a world-leading financial center.

Our scholarship programme, with its rich history spanning several decades, has been a stepping stone for many successful careers. During the official scholarship ceremony at this years’ AGM, six scholarships were provided to young, creative and talented individuals – giving them the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the upcoming year.

The programme is made possible through generous grants and donations from our scholarship partners, and we were pleased to see the two new scholarships for the year 2024/2025 being inaugurated: The Saven Scholarship and Annika Åman-Goodwille Scholarship
