Letter to the alumni of the Charles IV Promotion

Dear Alumni of the Charles IV Promotion

Seven years ago the College of Europe started a fundraising action among the alumni of the College. A Scholarship Fund for each promotion (up to 2000-2001) has been created. 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.

The Charles IV Promotion scholarship fund collected so far € 9210. Mr & Ms Emery, both classmates of your promotion, would like to activate the Charles IV Scholarship Fund.

A couple of weeks ago we received the following email from Veronica & Alex Emery:

“We would like to confirm that in honour of our 30th anniversary of our promotion’s year in Bruges, Veronica and I will fund one scholarship (€26,000) for the academic year 2022-2023. 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.”

The College of Europe is very grateful for this generous support. Herewith we kindly invite you to respond to the call of your classmates Veronica & Alex Emery.
