Class of 1987 Initiative

On the occasion of their 20th anniversary in 2007, the Bologna Class of 1987 decided to celebrate the special reunion by establishing an endowment at SAIS Bologna which ensures a yearly Class of 1987 Fellowship. Click here to see who contributed to the initiative.

Since 2011, 8 students have benefitted from the Class of 1987 Fellowship: View Fellowship Recipients
This year, the Class of 1987 Fellowship recipient is Mr. Rrap Kryeziu from USA/Kosovo.

Members of the Class are encouraged to connect on Facebook or via the Bologna Alumni office.

To celebrate its 30th anniversary the Class launched a fundraising initiative to augment the Class of 1987 Fellowship Fund to $280,000. With two seed gifts offered by classmates Joachim Fels and Nick Cortezi, the fundraising effort was off to a good start. Thanks to those who followed in their steps. With the key help of classmate Joseph Swanson, the goal has been reached! Special thanks go to the Class scholarship committee members for their dedication and support of this project on the occasion of the 2017 reunion: Aldo Morri, Christian Ziegler, Joachim Fels, Nick Cortezi, Jan Keppler, Mirek Stachowicz, Juan Blazquez, and Joe Swanson.

Questions and comments about gifts to the class initiative can be directed to the SAIS Europe development staff.
