IBEI takes action! Help crowdfund the ALUMNI SCHOLARSHIP for a student from a Sub-Saharan university

The IBEI as a community has decided to take action and help a student from a Sub-Saharan university come to pursue a Master’s degree at IBEI.

IBEI is launching a new initiative aimed at raising 13,000€, to fund a scholarship for a student whose bachelor degree is from a Sub-Saharan University. The initiative is a joint effort with Worldcoo, a company cofounded by IBEI alumnusSergi Figueres. Worldcoo connects committed companies with NGOs and other entities, to fund projects with a huge impact on society.

The exciting thing from this initiative is that the IBEI wants to offer this scholarship by donations from IBEI graduates. Members of all the IBEI community are also invited to make their contribution. As alumnus/alumnae, you are part of a community of already more than 700 members. This is a vital number of alumni, which may help to make this call happen.  The IBEI will add the same amount of the total raised; for each euro donated, the IBEI will also donate another euro.

The Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) was created in 2004 as a joint effort of all five public universities in the Barcelona metropolitan area to promote postgraduate training and research in international studies. Thirteen years later, IBEI has consolidated itself, both in Spain and abroad, as a leading graduate school and research institute.

IBEI  would like to invite its full community to participate in this crowdfunding initiative. The IBEI pledges to match euro for euro the same amount  as the total raised. To participate, please visit: ibei.worldcoo.com
