The Wallumni network
The Anders Wall Foundation annually awards scholarships to young talents in the fields of scientific research, entrepreneurship, rural development, international studies and classical music.
The financial element of the scholarship is of course important to the recipient, but the unique aspect of this scholarship – and what makes it so dynamic – is that the recipient becomes part of the prestigious Wallumni network. Members meet regularly for exclusive activities and study trips and support each other in many different respects
