Six recipients of PEXIM Cambridge Scholarships – four from Serbia and two from Macedonia – arrived to Cambridge in time to attend official start of the semesters at their Colleges. Upon their arrival, the students from Serbia and Macedonia attended the welcoming party organized by the Cambridge Overseas Trust (COT) where they had a chance to meet the Cambridge staff and their fellow students. The PEXIM group also keeps close ties with the two OSI Cambridge scholars from Serbia: Sonja Gitaric and Zeljko Duric.
This is the second generation of PEXIM scholars which PEXIM Foundation supports jointly with the Cambridge Overseas Trust. From its establishment in 2010, the PEXIM Foundation, in cooperation with Cambridge Overseas Trust, invested close to 350,000 EUR through PEXIM Cambridge Scholarship programme for eleven students in total (five from Macedonia and six from Serbia).
