Alumni of Charles IV Promotion celebrate special anniversary with new Scholarship Fund

In honour of the 30th anniversary of their Charles IV Promotion (1992-1993), College alumni Mr. Alex and Ms. Veronica EMERY decided to fund one full scholarship (€26,000) for the upcoming academic year 2022/23: The Charles IV Promotion Scholarship Fund. 

"We would like to confirm that on the occasion of the special birthday of our promotion's year in Bruges, Veronica and I will fund one scholarship (€26,000) for 2022/23 academic year. In addition, we would like to propose a matching fund of up to an additional €26,000 contributed by us. The idea is to encourage our classmates to participate. For each additional euro contributed by members of the Charles IV promotion, we will match it euro for euro, up to a cap of €26,000. The aim is to reach a total of three scholarships in honour of the three decades since we graduated", says alumnus Alex EMERY.

The Charles IV Promotion Scholarship Fund collected so far € 9210 and Mr. and Ms. EMERY are counting on the contributions of their former classmates to reach their ambitious goal of three full scholarships for the upcoming academic year.

Seven years ago, the College of Europe started a fundraising action among the alumni of the College. We created a scholarship fund for each promotion (up to 2000-2001). So far, we have received commitments from 323 alumni for a total sum of € 840,353 (situation January 2022).

This allowed us to already attribute 13 full, 20 half and 3 partial scholarships during the period 2014-2021. A full overview of all awarded Promotion Scholarships can be found HERE. More details on how to support and contribute to our scholarship projects can be found on our CoE website
