Apply for grants or funds

Are you a student and are you looking for funding to study abroad or for a project of your association? Or are you an employee of our university and can you use help in raising funds for a university or research project? The Utrecht University Fund provides grants and gives advice. Our fundraisers can also assist in fundraising other than through regular academic cash flows.

Funding request portal

The Utrecht University Fund has a funding request portal where students, alumni and employees can file a funding request for subsidies. Throughout the year there are 8 call for proposal rounds in which subsidies can be requested for different types of funding programs.

Are you a student organisation or Student Friend of the Fund that want to apply for a grant from the Student Commission (STUF)? Please visit the information on applying to STUF.

How does the portal work?

  1. Go to the portal
  2. Under ‘Funding Programs’  you can choose the funding program that you would like to apply for. Keep the start- and end date of the program in mind, this is the final deadline of handing in your request;
  3. Click the funding program of your choosing and click ‘apply’. If you are using the portal for the first time, an account will be created for you;
  4. You will receive an automatic email (also check your spam folder) where you can set a password for the portal;
  5. After this you can login with your password and go to ‘my applications’. Here you can find your initial funding request and continue your application.
