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 € 27,000 in donations. Through crowdfunding and the telephone fundraising campaign more than € 22,000 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 578 regular donors for the EBF.
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, sixty five 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.

Over 800 University of Groningen (UG) alumni live and/or work in London, which is the highest concentration of alumni in a city outside of the Netherlands. With over 14 international alumni chapters, a chapter in London was yet to be established. This is why a first official alumni meeting was held on April 18th, 2017. Alumni hang on every word of the interesting speeches given by Simon Smits (the Ambassador of the Netherlands), Paul Polman (CEO of Unilever and chairman of the Ubbo Emmius Fund) and Sibrand Poppema (President of the UG).

On Monday, May 1st, the annual telephone fundraising campaign of the Ubbo Emmius Fund (UEF) will start for the Junior Scientific Masterclass (JSM). In health care, there is a growing demand for doctor-researchers: doctors who combine patient care with clinical scientific research and thereby bridge the gap between practice and research. Therefore, the University of Groningen and the University Medical Center Groningen established the JSM in 1999. In the JSM program, students are offered additional courses and research places in addition to their regular education program. They can obtain an honors degree for research within the bachelors program and / or promote during an internship. At the end of this program, students will be able to obtain their doctor degree and promote at the same day.
Every year, a number of students receive a UEF-Talent Grant. With this scholarship they can fund the (additional) costs of their research. For the UEF-Talent Grants, the JSM depends on contributions from individuals, companies and institutions. Each year, the UEF collects funds, especially among alumni, for the JSM. The goal for this year is to raise € 22,500, so that two to three students can receive a UEF-Talent Grant. Since the collaboration with the UEF, a total of € 267,590 has been raised, and 33 students have received a scholarship!
