The UCU Fund aims to preserve and foster diversity at University College Utrecht by providing financial support to highly qualified students, who would otherwise not be able to afford an education at UCU.
University College Utrecht (UCU) is the international undergraduate Liberal Arts and Sciences honors college of Utrecht University. UCU is a place for motivated students who have broad academic and social interests and an international orientation. UCU has a strong international character; there are more than fifty nationalities among the student population. UCU students bring in diversity with regard to experiences, lifestyles, religions, languages, and social and cultural backgrounds. This vibrant and international environment provides all of our students with an unique opportunity to study, live and make friends with people from all over the world!
The UCU Fund is a Named Fund under the umbrella of the Utrecht University Fund. The UCU fund comprises all of UCU’s scholarship and fundraising activities.
Have a positive impact on the life of a future student
A Liberal Arts & Sciences vision of education only thrives if its participants consist of persons representing a wide variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.
Many high-potential candidates work hard for a place at University College Utrecht, but with ever-rising living and study costs, they may feel that they simply cannot afford an education at UCU. By donating to the UCU Fund you can have a direct positive impact on the life of a future student.
