Do you have experience in organising successful alumni events? Have you wished there was a larger grant to apply for at SI to realize your vision of a bigger alumni activity bringing more alumni together? Do you have an idea for a big-scale alumni event on the theme of entrepreneurship?

The SI Alumni Forum concept was launched as a pilot project in 2015. Belarus, Indonesia and Uganda were chosen for the pilot and three successful events on the theme of entrepreneurship were held during the year.

This year SI opens up for alumni from any country to apply to organise an SI Alumni Forum. One application will be approved, meaning that only one organising team will be given the opportunity to hold an SI Alumni Forum in 2016.

Please find all the details in the application instructions available for download here.

The application form can be downloaded here.

Remember to submit your application before 1 April!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the SI Alumni Team.

Of course, it doesn’t mean that we did everything by ourselves. Within the organizing process a lot of other alumni in Belarus provided their support in different stages and in various activities.
