About The Lone Strøyberg Scholarship
The Lone Strøyberg Scholarship was established in 2015 in memory of Lone Strøyberg, the first Managing Director of the Danish-UK Chamber of Commerce (now the Danish-UK Association) in London, who died tragically young of ovarian cancer. We honour her through this scholarship. Click the article to the right for more background (in Danish).
The aim of the scholarship is to provide vital knowledge, experience and a unique high-level network to young entrepreneurial Danes who can support the commercial relationship between Denmark and the UK. The opportunity will encourage internationally minded candidates to experience working in the UK for up to two years.
The scholarship will fund young Danes to undertake internships at the Danish-UK Association, as well as with the Association’s corporate members in the UK. The Association provides top level contacts of both nationalities vital for the future. Scholarships can be general, or specific to the donor’s requirement or sector, provided the scholar is available for some Association duties. Donor companies may have naming rights to their scholar in any profiling undertaken by the Association. Scholars will also benefit from a strong Young Professional group and the cultural and social activities organised by the Association. In the future we are also looking to develop similar scholarships in Denmark for UK students.
This is a unique opportunity for carefully selected young people with high potential to get a world-class network through the Association and its members, on which to build their own professional careers, and to benefit the commercial relationship between Denmark and the UK. We have a proven formula which has shown great success through our first scholar and also the past and existing interns in the Danish-UK Association. The scholars will leave with a strong network, experience and an understanding of Danish/UK relations to enable them to navigate their future in this commercial environment.
