A British group of Friends of EHU has raised EUR 2,000 in scholarship funding for EHU students. The funds will be used to support a doctoral student of philosophy.
The scholarship was raised at a private event hosted by Friend of EHU Board Member Laura Dzelzyte and her fiancé Tom Scarborough to celebrate their recent engagement. Guests were invited to make a donation in lieu of gifts.
Dzelzyte, who made a significant contribution herself, says she sees great value in the kind of education that EHU offers:
"People these days are rather practical when it comes to academics, but I feel that the future of any country depends on fresh ideas and thinking, so it is important to nurture and support liberal arts and studies such as philosophy."
Friends of EHU is EHU's support organization that unites individuals seeking to promote humanities education and academic freedom in Belarus and beyond. Visit the group's site to find out how you can help.
