Eric Bleumink Fund, University of Groningen

Master's Programmes


The primary objective of the Eric Bleumink Fund, established on 23 May 2000, is to provide financial support to Master´s students and PhD students from developing countries who wish to pursue a Master´s degree or a doctorate (see the first two columns of Appendix 1). for the names of the countries that are considered developing countries). This initiative will not only improve the cooperation between the University of Groningen and universities in developing countries, but will also raise the level of academic expertise in these countries.

The name of the fund pays tribute to Prof. Eric Bleumink, a former chairman of the Board of the University.

Prof. Eric Bleumink retired as chairman of the Board of the University on 24 May 2000. Other positions that he held include those of Rector Magnificus of the University and member of the Board of the Faculty of Medical Sciences. Prof. Eric Bleumink set an example of inspired leadership with a distinct personal style. He advocated embedding the university more firmly in society - at regional, national and international levels. His commitment to humanity and the universitas is clearly illustrated by his efforts to improve cooperation between the University and its sister organizations in developing countries. His efforts helped to make this cooperation an integrated part of University policy. The academic community and all those around it have shown their appreciation through the establishment of a fund bearing his name.
