SPECIAL Initiatives
UK Charitable Trust

The Bologna Center UK Charitable Trust - a registered Charity in the UK - was founded in 1991 in London by a group of Bolognesi led by alumnus Jonathan Cooper with the goal to support the Center in Bologna in the advancement of education by the promotion in the UK of post graduate study courses offered by the Bologna Center including the provision of financial assistance including scholarships, exhibitions and bursaries to British students at the Center.

Current Trust members are:
  • Miriam Armstrong, B'82, '83
  • Angelo Ciavarella, B'05, '06
  • Angelina Magal, B'17
  • Peter Taylor, B'99
  • John Ulrich, B'11, '12, Chair
In 1993, the Trustees of the Bologna Center UK Charitable Trust voted on the establishment of a yearly fellowship to support the future generations of students from the UK at SAIS Europe. The fellowship was intended to be a collective effort funded through donations made by alumni.

In recent years, the UK Charitable Trust Fellowship has become even more important for students due to the cancellation of fellowship support from the UK government.

Since its inception, 22 students have benefitted from the UK Charitable Trust Fellowship.

Unfortunately, the fellowship amount has decreased in recent years to the detriment of our ability to attract more than 1 or 2 students per year from the whole United Kingdom. Alumni generosity is critical to ensure that the UK Charitable Trust Fellowship continues to exist and we hope that many will start again to show their support of this important initiative.

Gifts are tax effective in the UK (for UK tax payers as well as dual US-UK tax payers) and can be made in several ways through JHU UK Charities: the Bologna Center of the Johns Hopkins University UK Charitable Trust and the JHU (USA) Foundation. For giving instructions see below.

Furthermore, all contributions made through JHU UK charities are eligible for the Inland Revenue's Gift Aid!

On behalf of SAIS Europe and its students, grazie mille!
