Pay It Forward

Our university is looking for solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow. In order to realise this, your support is needed. Will you help contribute to a better future?

We proudly present the four projects of our 2023 campaign. Your donation will make a big difference and will fully benefit the project of your choice.

Contribute to equal opportunities to study in Utrecht

Support from parents or the government is not something that everyone can take for granted. That's why Utrecht University has scholarship programs for talented students.

Care about Utrecht's Pearls of Glass

Utrecht University Museum holds a unique scientific collection of glass models of marine animals made by father and son Blaschka. At the time, these Blaschkas were necessary to study marine invertebrates. To preserve the centuries-old collection, they need to be restored. 

Contribute to Wadden Sea plastic-free

Utrecht University is conducting research into sea currents that cause plastic waste to spread in the ocean. Thanks to research, we can predict where and when plastic will wash ashore, so that targeted clean-ups can prevent it from damaging or washing back into the sea.

Contribute to regenerative medicine

The 3D bioprint technique makes it possible to build tissues. Researchers are combining algae with this printing technique to develop larger living tissues such as cartilage or heart in the future.
