December campaign Eric Bleumink Fund

26 January 2017

The month December was dedicated to the Eric Bleumink Fund (EBF) of the Ubbo Emmius Fund. In the December issue of the alumni magazine Broerstraat 5 a payment slip was enclosed through which the EBF could be supported. This action resulted in a total of €37,000 in donations. Through crowdfunding and the telephone fundraising campaign more than €23,000 was raised. Moreover, the staff of the University and the UMCG can support the EBF by donating their Christmas gift. It is not known yet how much has been donated. Finally, there are 586 regular donors for the EBF. Thanks to the donations, five students can start with an EBF scholarship in September 2017. The selection will take place in spring.

EBF is the oldest Fund of the Ubbo Emmius Fund. For seventeen years, funds are being raised for scholarships of the EBF. With success: since its launch in 2000, over sixty young, ambitious and highly talented students from developing countries receive the EBF Talent Grant. Each year an average of four students can follow a master's program at the University of Groningen.
