Gull & Stellan Ljungberg Foundation Scholarship

Gull & Stellan Ljungberg Foundation Scholarship

In 2021, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce was very proud to launch the collaboration with the Gull & Stellan Ljungberg Foundation Scholarship. The Scholarship offers a talented and creative young professional with connection to the municipalities of Uddevalla and Trollhättan, the unique opportunity to acquire international experience by joining the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for a period of 12 months. 

About Gull & Stellan Ljungberg Foundation

In memory of Gull and Stellan Ljungberg, the major part of the foundation’s return is each year distributed to young students and professionals from the municipalities of Uddevalla and Trollhättan. The foundation prioritizes 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 traveled 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.

My time as a scholar at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce has so far been an intense, exciting, and very rewarding journey. I love that you, at an early stage, were given a lot of freedom and responsibility to take on your own projects with the support and help from the rest of the team. This has given me the opportunity to put my theoretical knowledge to the test, and apply it in real situations, which both have contributed positively to the Swedish Chamber of Commerce as well as to my personal development.”
