Andreé and Franz Bingen Fund 

As of 2000, Vesalius College, which is one of the members of the Brussels School of Governance alliance, grants prizes and scholarships in honour of Andrée and Franz Bingen. The Fund Andrée and Franz Bingen was established in 2018 to guarantee a fair assignment of these prizes and scholarships in the long term.

 

Donors

Andrée and Franz Bingen married in 1960 and have had three sons together. Franz Bingen is emeritus prof. dr. of mathematics at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the founder of the Vesalius College. Andrée Bingen, who used to be a teacher of biology at the Atheneum of Nijvel, has done a lot for the Vesalius College behind the scenes. In her eyes, it was unfair that students of the Vesalius College with financial problems had a disadvantage through their academic career. The Andrée Bingen fund was established for this reason.
