Next generation of young talents welcomed to the SCC Scholarship Programme
10 June 2022
A new cohort of young talents were welcomed to the SCC Scholarship Programme at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK’s 115th Annual General Meeting (AGM). The scholars are offered the unique opportunity to join the Swedish Chamber for a full year in London – the world’s leading financial centre, and Europe’s business capital.
The SCC Scholarship Programme has served as a launchpad for many successful alumni careers over several decades. Today, many of its alumni are business leaders at large multinational corporates, senior marketing directors or founders and entrepreneurs.
“With The SCC Scholarship Programme we are creating a win-win situation, for both the business community and these young talents. From CEOs to CFOs, marketing directors and partners at investment firms – the alumni of the programme are everywhere in business today,” says Peter Sandberg, Chief Executive at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK. “This year, we had over 100 talents applying to the programme, which is a testament to the quality of the opportunity.”
At the official scholarship ceremony for the 2022/23 programme taking place at the AGM on 9 June, five scholarships were provided to talented and creative young professionals, offering them twelve months' experience at the Chamber's secretariat in London.
The scholarships have been made possible through partnerships with generous donations from the Elof Hansson Foundation, the Gull & Stellan Ljungberg Foundation, the Scholarship Fund for Swedish Youth Abroad, Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn, and the Sten A. Olsson Foundation for Research and Culture.
