Financial Assistance and Sandy Spoor Wepster Scholarships

Financial Assistance:

The European Alumnae Council is able to offer Symposium registration fees for a limited number of alumnae who may not be able to attend otherwise due to financial hardship. Financial assistance covers the registration fee only. The alumna would still be responsible for her own travel and accommodation.

Requests for a financial assistance application form should be made to the European Council at prior to registration. Please mark email requests “Leuven Financial Assistance.” Completed forms will be treated in strict confidence.  Deadline for receipt of completed applications is June 30.

Please note: Young alumnae should take into consideration that they are already being awarded a discount of 50 euro. Financial assistance is for extraordinary circumstances only.
