Dear Friends of the New Europe College, dear Alumni, dear Supporters,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the founding of the Association of Friends and Supporters of New Europe Foundation Bucharest. It has been quite a while since close friends of the NEC suggested that it is time to establish such an association. A lot of ideas and suggestions came up, followed by many discussions, and finally, in 2014, an Alumni Club has been created.

We would like to express our gratitude to those of you who contributed to the consolidation of the Alumni Club. The idea of establishing a scholarship with funds raised with your help was successful; the NEC Academic Advisory Board will select a young scholar who will have the possibility to benefit from a short research stay at the NEC thanks to you. We are deeply grateful for this!

The Association of Friends and Supporters will, of course, include all Alumni who would like to join it. Furthermore, it will open the door to people who have given their support to our institution, financially and otherwise, as well as to academics who have been our guests over the years. The newly founded Association already counts over 20 members – whom we would like to thank once again for their readiness to support the New Europe College and for their long-lasting friendship.

Please find below the official invitation letter and the declaration of membership, as well as the statute of the Association. During the first meeting, in November 2017, Viorel Anăstăsoaie, NEC Alumnus and Librarian at the NEC since 2014, has been elected member of the Board. If you have any further questions regarding the Association of Friends and Supporters, please don’t hesitate to contact him:

We would greatly appreciate your support!
