Annual report of the Utrecht University Fund
Annual Report 2021
Our anniversary year in 2021 saw the Utrecht University Fund support a wide range of projects by UU researchers and students, and marked the start of various new initiatives. Another strange year of restrictions and personal anxieties, but also a period in which the sun came out again and we could finally look ahead. And a year in which the University and University Fund both celebrated an anniversary.
In this Annual Report 2021, you will find personal stories illustrating what we are doing it for. For example, it is fantastic that Charisma Hehakaya took the initiative to start a fund for first generation students so they experience fewer obstacles and are better able to find existing support. Thanks to the very special legacy of alum Johanna Alida van Leerzem, who graduated as a general practitioner in 1959, young promising scientists such as Jesper Weehuizen can now conduct patient-related scientific and (fundamental) research in the field of internal medicine.
