Six companies have committed themselves to making a financial contribution to the Amsterdam University College Scholarship Fund (ASF) for three years. This was announced by the Mayor of Amsterdam, Eberhard van der Laan, during the ASF Fundraising Dinner on Tuesday, 17 May. The ASF awards scholarships to talented students who require financial support to study at Amsterdam University College (AUC). The ASF is sponsored by Shell, Rabobank, Schiphol Group, KLM, Akzo Nobel and PwC. In addition, the University of Amsterdam and VU University Amsterdam, AUC's parent institutions, also contribute to the Scholarship Fund.
