On Tuesday 26 January, The Queen presented scholarships from Queen Silvia's Jubilee Fund for research on children and children's disabilities. The presentation took place at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.
Queen Silvia's Jubilee Fund for research on children and children's disabilities was established in connection with H.M The Queen's 50th birthday in order to manage and distribute the donations that were received from the Swedish people in honour of The Queen's birthday.
Every year the fund awards grant, in particular to students enrolled on postgraduate courses at universities and colleges around the country. A special area of research is prioritised each year, which is announced in connection with the invitation to apply for a grant.
The theme for this year was: "Early risk factors for chronic illnesses and disabilities in children".
