Emergency fund for students in acute need

student in bibliotheek

Do you want to do something for students in need? The Utrecht University Fund uses its Emergency Fund for students who have been affected by illness, the political situation in their home country, war, personal circumstances, or just plain bad luck. This can put them in acute financial difficulty, unable to afford basic needs. The university helps and supports them whenever possible, with a modest contribution that can be used to meet the initial acute financial need. We greatly need the help of our academic community. Donations to the Emergency Fund can be done through this page.

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.
