Russian Alumni Launch Newest CEU Scholarship

November 15, 2017

It’s official: CEU’s Russian alumni have launched their own scholarship to support CEU students from their country. They are the university’s fourth alumni chapter to do so.

On Monday Nov. 13 more than a dozen alumni gathered in a Moscow pub for a lively reunion and the fund’s official kickoff. The event featured networking, an update from CEU's VP Serge Sych (IRES '97, LEGS '99), and a fundraising portion in which nearly every attendee contributed towards the scholarship. 

Hands On: Students Find New Ways to Fundraise

These students aren’t waiting around. 

In September, seven Alumni Scholarship Recipients took action to make a difference and get some hands-on experience in giving back, by forming CEU’s first Student Philanthropy Council.

The council’s mission is simple: find new and fun ways to raise funds and educate the community about the importance of philanthropy.
