The December campaign for Eric Bleumink Fund (EBF) has become a tradition. Since its creation in 2000, 65 young, ambitious and highly talented students from developing countries have been awarded an EBF scholarship to study at the University of Groningen. The annual campaign starts on Monday the 27th of November with a telephone fundraising campaign to the alumni of the University. This will run until the 15th of December. On December 22nd the alumni magazine Broerstraat 5 will fall on your doorstep again with an enclosed payment slip with which you can support our Fund. The staff of the University of Groningen and the UMCG can also contribute by donating their Christmas gift to the EBF. Finally, it is possible to support talented students from developing countries via the crowdfunding website,
www.rugsteunt.nl. The total result for the EBF was € 117.094,56 in the year 2016. We hope to exceed this amount!
