Thomas Waelde Fund Donors
The late Prof. Thomas Wälde and Mr. Ian Laird in September 2008 launched an appeal to raise funds to support developing country teams' participation in the FDI Moot. The Thomas Wälde Team Fund distributes donations in the form of accommodation or travel subsidies. The full amount of all donations received goes to teams. Teams receiving subsidies are selected based on available funds and team needs.
Since 2010 FTI Consulting has matched donations (up to US $2500), and since 2011, Skadden has done the same (up to US $1500). We would like to thank the individuals and organisations for their donations and FTI Consulting and Skadden for their matching support.
