On Wednesday 29 September, The King attended the presentation of this year's scholarships within the Bernadotte Programme.
Five of the royal academies established the Bernadotte Programme to mark The King's 70th birthday in 2016. The aim of the programme is to offer further training for researchers and young artists via scholarships.
The King also presented the scholarships during this year's ceremony in the Bernadotte Library.

The Bernadotte Programme aims to offer higher education (at postdoctoral level, after having completed an artistic degree or equivalent) for outstanding young talents who are becoming established as leading practitioners within their individual fields. One basic idea is that every project should involve at least two academies' areas of expertise in some form, for example in combinations of arts and forms of knowledge, and should thereby make use of the academies' different capacities.
