Subsidies for students

Studying is more than acquiring relevant knowledge. Young people lay a foundation for the rest of their lives during their studies. Thanks to donations from Friends and donors, approximately 80,000 euros is available annually to subsidize activities for and by Utrecht students.

Do you want to apply for subsidy?

Both study, sports and student associations and individual students can apply for a subsidy for extracurricular activities. Examples are study trips, symposia, cultural and sports activities and social initiatives.

Are you a Student Friend?

One of the conditions for applying for a subsidy is that you are a student friend of the Utrecht University Fund yourself. Fortunately, it only costs ten euros a year and you also get a nice Utrecht University hoodie as a welcome gift! Be quick, because the hoodies for new Friends are limited!
