On Thursday 14 March, The King held an audience with Executive Director Anna Rosvall Stuart and Director Olle Wästberg from the Sweden-America Foundation.
During the audience, The King was presented with a copy of a book commemorating the Foundation's centenary.
The King has been patron of the foundation since 1976.
The purpose of the foundation is to develop links between Sweden on the one side and the USA and Canada on the other. The foundation promotes an exchange of scientific, cultural and practical experience between these countries by awarding scholarships to young people for research and higher education in the USA and Canada.
The Sweden-America Foundation facilitates academic education, research and work experience in the USA and Canada for talented, motivated students. By the time they return to Sweden, they have cutting-edge competence, international experience and valuable contacts for Swedish industry, society and research.
