I would like to become a Friend

As a Friend, your contribution will support the Utrecht University Fund (U-Fund). Become a Friend now.

As a student, you can also become a Friend of the University Fund. In that case, you will be a Student Friend for a reduced fee and will be supporting your own student life.

Your contribution makes it possible
The Friends of the University Fund have formed the basis for our activities for 128 years. Thanks to our Friends, we award grants and prizes to students and can continue to build on a flourishing University community of which alumni are an indispensable part.

Annual contribution payment
Friends pay a minimum contribution of € 30. If you authorise us to do so, we will automatically debit the amount from your account at the end of the year. If you opt to transfer your contribution yourself, we will send you a reminder at the end of the year.

We are always happy to receive an additional contribution, since this will enable us to do even more for students and a flourishing academic climate in Utrecht.

The Friends Card
As a Friend, you will also receive the Friends Card. This entitles you to attractive discounts!

Student Friend
Sign up for a Student Friendship now and benefit immediately!

The donations made by our student friends directly contribute to overall student funding. So, by becoming a Friend of the University Fund, you'll not only support the work we do, but also support the efforts of your own student organisation. Become our Friend now.
Friends of the University Fund may also apply for funding themselves. This could help you find the funding you need for your extra-curricular project. Perhaps you are planning a study trip or are looking to attend a conference abroad? Sign up now to find out if we can help you. Student Friendships are available for as little as €10/year. 

Sign up for a Student Organisation Friendship!

Utrecht student organisations that become our Friend also become eligible to apply for funding from the Utrecht University Fund. That is why most Utrecht student organisations have signed up for a University Fund Friendship. Student Organisation Friendships are available for as little as € 30/year. Become our Friend now.
