Eric Bleumink Fund (EBF) offers talented students from developing countries the opportunity to study at the University of Groningen. At our University, they have access to a modern education system, advanced research facilities and an international academic network. Things that are very common in the Netherlands, but often lack in their home country. Since its inception in 2000, 71 young, ambitious and highly talented people have received an EBF Talent Grant.
Thanks to the contributions from almost 2.000 alumni, students and staff of the University of Groningen (UG) each year, the EBF can award around four students a scholarship. Unfortunately, not all applications can be honored, but our ambition is to increase the number of scholarships. We hope to be able to finance the study of an extra student via a telephone fundraising and a crowdfunding campaign among alumni. The costs for one grant are approximately € 25,000.
You can help us. Every amount is welcome!
