Emergency fund for students in acute need

Steun Utrechts studenten uit Oekraïne, Rusland en Belarus

Do you want to do something for students in need because of the war in Ukraine? The Utrecht University Fund uses its Emergency Fund for affected students. Because of the war, UU students from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus are facing acute financial problems, making it impossible for them to support themselves. The university helps and supports them where possible, but we also need the help of our academic community to support these students. Donations to the Emergency Fund can be made through the university's crowdfunding platform.

Academic community shows solidarity
These students are part of our academic community and should not have to bear the brunt of decisions made in the Kremlin. The Utrecht student associations, among others, support the action and call on their members to donate. Many alumni and friends of our university already contributed, hundreds of donations were received. "I hope this donation will help a little bit and I sympathize with all the students, staff and their families who are suffering the consequences of this terrible war", writes one of them. Another: "Students should be able to finish their education, especially when your country is at war." Help too and show the world that science transcends politics and is actually fraternal.
