The Faculty of Humanities covers four areas of knowledge:
- History and Art History
- Languages, Literature and Communication
- Media and Culture Studies
- Philosophy and Religious Studies
The Friends of the Utrecht Humanities Fund, founded on 18 June 2019, helps the faculty achieve its goal and finances scholarships and various research and educational projects.
Which students and researchers are eligible for grants?
The fund provides grants and scholarships to students and researchers of the Faculty of Humanities and finances (parts of) education and research programmes.
Utrecht Excellence Scholarships
In times of globalisation of education and research and the internationalisation of the job market, it is important to create an international classroom within the Humanities’ studies. To achieve this, Friends of Humanities Utrecht University awards Utrecht Excellence Scholarships to excellent, international students who have applied for a Master's degree and do not have the means to study in Utrecht.
