The Spirit of Giving Back at CERGE-EI

1 December, 2020

A few days ago we were excited to announce the names of the first two students to receive the Alumni Excellence Fellowships. As of today, we are launching the second call for alumni donations to the CERGE-EI Student Support Fund in the hope that we will be able to grant fellowships to more excellent students next year.

"The alumni response to our Student Support Fund initiative last year showed that feelings of fraternity resonate strongly within the alumni community," said Martin Kálovec, CERGE-EI Alumni and Chair of the Board of Nadace CERGE-EI. "I have every expectation that we can at least repeat that success this year too," he added.

The Student Support Fund was established for CERGE-EI Master students (Master in Economic Research leading to a PhD in Economics, and Master in Applied Economics), to raise funds for their stipends and fellowships. This support is vital for them to concentrate fully on their studies, and it helps the CERGE-EI study programs to be more competitive with other top programs in attracting the best talent.
