Boost your international career as a Scholar at the SCC in London
1 November 2023
The SCC is proud to announce three scholarships available for a new cohort of young talents to join the SCC Scholarship Programme in 2024/25. The programme lasts for 12 months and has served as a platform to launch many successful alumni careers over the years. The scholarships have been made possible through generous donations from: Elof Hansson Foundation, Gull & Stellan Ljungberg Foundation, and Sparbankstiftelsen Finn.
London and the UK has attracted Swedish talent for centuries, and with its vibrant atmosphere and diversity, London has a lot to offer both its residents and businesses. For many, making it in the UK is seen as the gateway to the rest of the world. This is probably one of the reasons for the 1,000+ Swedish businesses with a footprint here and the 100,000+ Swedes residing in the country. Applying to our scholarship programme gives you the unique opportunity to join the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK for a full year in London – the world’s leading financial centre, and Europe’s business capital.
Elof Hansson Foundation
The Elof Hansson Foundation was created in 1985 through a donation by Bo-Elof Hansson. The Elof Hansson company is a global business facilitator for buyers and sellers of pulp, paper, and timber. The foundation supports academic education, research, and training in the commercial sector. The main focus is on trade and business activities such as marketing, international trade, accounting, commercial law and business language, and it has long standing partnership with Chalmers University of Technology and the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg.
Gull & Stellan Ljungberg Foundation
In memory of Gull and Stellan Ljungberg, a majority of the foundation's return is each year distributed to young students from the municipalities of Uddevalla and Trollhättan. The foundation prioritises applicants who study, participate in exchange semesters, or do fieldwork abroad.
Gull and Stellan ran a leather factory together in Uddevalla during their active years. They both travelled a lot and strived for new knowledge continuously. They made extensive use of both the English and German languages and had a great interest in international business and cultural life. Gull and Stellan donated a part of their fortune to the foundation to enable young students to gain that same international experience they both cherished so much.
Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn is one of the owners of Sparbanken Skåne. Dividend from its ownership and the return on various other investments give the opportunity to contribute to various projects within education, culture, sports, children and youth, research, and entrepreneurship. The foundation wants to invest in a future that is good for the region and for future generations.
