Dr Tobias Jung

Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Management at the University of St. Andrews. His move in January 2014 from Principal Research Fellow in Cass has secured a new and committed university partner in Scotland for CGAP.

A Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund legacy grant, for developing knowledge and interaction between philanthropic foundations, is now being led from St Andrews by Tobias. A DMF-funded Practice Fellow's report on the state of development in the philanthropy curriculum in European Higher education is due later in 2014. An appointment of a Research Assistant for furthering foundations' research is also scheduled for late 2014. A new undergraduate honours module in philanthropy has been developed and is being offered in St. Andrews from 2014/15 and close research collaboration continues with colleagues in the Faculties of Management at both universities.
