To honour the life and work of President Nelson Mandela of South Africa, the INSEAD MBA Class of '75 created an endowment at their 30th Class Reunion to provide financial support for one or more African participants per year at INSEAD in perpetuity. At their 5th reunion the Class of '01J contributed to this important scholarship fund, as did the Class of '97D on the occasion of their 10th reunion and the Class of '69 at their 40th reunion. Recently the “Atlantic Group" in the Class of ‘99D contributed.
