The Education Prizewinners

There were happy faces all round when the Groningen University Fund Education Prizes were being awarded during the opening ceremony of the academic year. Nine students in total – one from each faculty – were awarded prizes, consisting of EUR 2500. Laurie Reijnders, student of Economics and Econometrics, was announced the overall winner and received twice this amount. Laurie Reijnders (second row on the right in the photograph) stands out because of the high marks she has received throughout her degree – from mathematics and statistics to modules that focus on argumentation and intuition. In addition, she also works as a student assistant, is a member of the Faculty Council and she is involved in the organization of activities within the framework of the Honours Path.


The Education Prizewinners, from left to right: Front row: Wouter Lueks (two Master’s degree programmes in Mathematics and in Computing Science), Rutger Timmer (Research Master in Law), Marleen Damman (Research Master in Human Behaviour in Social Contexts), Bianca Bosman (Bachelor’s degree programme in Philosophy), Lusi Hasfiati (Master’s degree programme in Enviromental and Infrastructure Planning), Albertina Oegema (Bachelor's degree programme in Theology). Back row: Kars de Bruijne (Research Master in Modern History and International Relations), Laurie Reijnders (two Bachelor’s degree programmes in Economics and in Econometrics).
