Universitatea Bucuresti a primit o generoasa donatie…
…de trei snopi de puli pe spinare, ca nu-i Cambridge
Am o amica, o tipa care lucra pentru o universitate de-aici cu chestii de-astea. Ii contacta pe fostii studenti “ba, vreti sa veniti sa organizam ceva event, dati ceva donatii…derp”. Iar aia dadeau, cica.
The University of Cambridge is celebrating the largest single donation to an English university in recent history, after announcing a gift of £100m from the financier David Harding to support students.
Harding, a physics graduate from Cambridge who became a billionaire and hugely successful hedge fund manager, has pledged that some of the funds will go to promote access for students from disadvantaged and minority ethnic backgrounds.
In historical terms the Harding donation, despite its nominal size, pales in comparison to the $10m donated to Scotland’s universities by Andrew Carnegie in 1902, or the massive endowment given to Oxford by Cecil Rhodes in his will, establishing the scholarship that bears his name.
The Canadian media magnate and investor John McCall MacBain is likely to have matched Harding’s donation, having made a £75m donation to the Rhodes scholarship trust in 2013 with matching additions that have probably taken it to about £100m in total.
Astept cu incredere sa aud si de ceva studenti d-astia care paseaza niste sute de milioane universitatilor din Romulania.
…sigur, intai ar trebui sa iasa de-acolo unul care sa faca miliarde. Da’ nu-i graba. Asteptam.
