39 Club Scholarship

Do you have what it takes to be a 39 Club scholar?

Every year, the FIDI 39 Club allows one deserving member of the club to participate in the FIDI Conference, all expenses paid*. The lucky person must be a member of the 39 Club and prove that they are actively involved in their local community (for example organizing and/or participating in a charity project) or within their company (for example demonstrating a leadership role, participating in a mentor programme, etc.).

Applications have to be sent by email to 39club@fidi.org and should include a written presentation of your project (min. 1,000 words). You can include an optional video presentation as well (max. 5 minutes duration).

*to a maximum of 5,000.00

 

Congratulations to Gabriela Humeniuk from Liftvan International, who attended the 2019 FIDI Conference in Amsterdam as the first FIDI 39 Club scholarship winner.

LogoGabriela presented a beautiful charity project, outstanding in its simplicity and dedication to the wellbeing of poor communities throughout Argentina. “Giving is your best move”, a project initiated by Gabriela and her colleagues in 2013, encourages clients to donate their unwanted clothes during the packing and unpacking stage. Liftvan sorts and packs the clothes at their office and then delivers it to selected charities throughout the country. To date, the project has donated over 800kg of clothes (around 150 boxes) and runs at almost no cost.
