This year the Eric Bleumink Fund awarded three scholarships to talented students from developing countries. The scholarships enable them to further develop as individuals and to make important contributions to the development of their own countries.

After completing his master, he would like to return to his homeland and make efforts to transfer the knowledge he has acquired to others through training and work in the area of Research and Development. The Nepalese Subrata Lamsal (1992) studies Energy and Climate Law. Her ultimate dream is working towards strengthening the Energy Sector in her country.

Since 2000, the year the fund was started, the EBF handed out nearly fifty scholarships. This meant nearly fifty young, ambitious and very talented people were able to follow an additional study at the University of Groningen. Here they were introduced to an academic culture, libraries and  international contacts they are often lacking in their homeland.
