SKEMA United solidarity fund to give out 300 grants

In April, SKEMA put out a call for donations to help those of its students hard hit by the crisis to pursue their studies. The goal of the SKEMA United solidarity fund is to give out at least 300 grants by November, ranging from €1,000 to €3,000.

​To process the first applications swiftly, a grant allocation committee has already met to go through 200 requests and has awarded the first 30 grants. 

To reach our goal, we are counting on the support of each member of the SKEMA community. Within less than a month, thanks to the involvement of our alumni, students, staff, professors and partners, participation has already been huge.

In a few days, we will have the pleasure of officially presenting you our alumni ambassadors. They are the champions of this campaign within our community and out in the world. The campaign has been going for a few weeks now and there have already been a lot of shares on social media under the hashtags #SKEMAunited and #SKEMAalumni. We are proud of our alumni’s involvement around the world. 

Jean-Baptiste Welsch (SK 2015), SKEMA United ambassador, emphasises the values of the community: “I support the SKEMA United solidarity fund because it is important to show our students who have been severely affected by the health crisis that they have our support. Helping them proves to them that SKEMA is a family.

These grants can only be funded with help from the entire community. We are especially counting on our alumni network to support the school in this act of solidarity, an initiative that reflects SKEMA’s values.

The SKEMA United campaign will run for six months, but some initial grants of €1,000 to €2,000 have already been distributed. Allocation committees are due to meet each week over the coming months.

We are counting on the entire SKEMA community. Let us stay true to the SKEMA Alumni network’s values of solidarity, which are all the more important during this period.

Let’s pull together! Every donation counts!

Thank you all for taking part.
