The Teaching Fellowship Programme is an initiative by Utrecht University designed to reward excellence and promote the quality of education. The programme was launched in 2011, when the first group of eight Teaching Fellows was selected.

Educational innovation

Each of the Teaching Fellows carries out a project aimed at improving the quality of education within their faculty. They receive a grant of 5,000 euros, which they can spend at their discretion in the context of their project.
