POUR TOUTE QUESTION : Karyn Mikkelsen-Tillet, Development Manager, Fondation Audencia email@example.com
With a network of 30,000 alumni, Audencia and its Foundation are committed to contributing to equal opportunities in higher education. IMAGINE WHAT WE COULD DO TOGETHER!
Like every year, the Audencia Foundation is launching its year-end campaign to help the most vulnerable students. The growing needs of students and the great generosity of the network make us think that TOGETHER we can collect € 50,000.
€ 50,000 for 3 projects:
1. the solidarity fund
As isolation and financial hardship have become part of everyday life for students, we are convinced that the solidarity fund launched in 2020, must be permanent. In times of crisis or not, it brings a concrete response to the challenges of equal opportunities and support for student living expenses.
2. international scholarships
International internship scholarships: An essential springboard to employment, many students are unable to do an internship abroad because of the living costs involved.
Excellence scholarships for international students: Coming from countries with low purchasing power.
3. entrepreneurship scholarships
While becoming a student entrepreneur is a challenge in its own right, this help is a concrete solution so that they do not have to worry about their living costs at the start of their project.
In a context of crisis, the Audencia community was able to generously respond to the call for help from students. With the COVID solidarity fund, the Foundation has thus financed measures dedicated to improving student life for the benefit of 130 beneficiaries.
Each year, the power of donations from the alumni network enables concrete actions to be carried out. It is thanks to the generosity of the network that it has been possible to award more than 700 scholarships to deserving French and international students from countries with low purchasing power or families in financial difficulty, as well as to student entrepreneurs.
