"Alumni Association of SSE RIGA currently unites around 2000 graduates of BSc and EMBA programs hosted by the school. Annual Fund raising campaign has been a tradition for many years and our Alumni community has proved to the world to be among the most active donators with highest participation rates. In recent years we have managed to encourage almost 40% of graduates to give back to the school with an average donation being close to 200 EUR. Recent questionnaire showed that more than 60% of alumni are ready to contribute funds to the benefit of current students."
First of all we want to double the amount of funds raised within the best campaigns ever, increase the number of donators and also average donation per alumnus. The total budget we are after is 300 000 EUR, best case scenario it would be 1000 alumnus with an average of 300 EUR donation.
Achievement of the goal would give us the opportunity to distribute 30 scholarships, 20 to Year 1 students and 10 to the best Year 2 students.
This time the scholarship distribution model is completely different in order to enhance the results of the scholarship system. Every student currently selected for the scholarships is an applicant. The scholarship for every year of studies will be paid out only after delivering satisfactory academic results, showing significant leadership skills and involvement in extracurricular activities. Our scholarships is not a free of charge gift it must be considered as a financial incentive for outstanding performance."
