University College Utrecht (UCU) has a strong international character; there are more than fifty nationalities among the student population. UCU students bring in diversity with regard to experiences, lifestyles, religions, languages, and social and cultural backgrounds. This vibrant and international environment provides all of our students with an unique opportunity to study, live and make friends with people from all over the world!
A wide variety of backgrounds
A Liberal Arts & Sciences vision of education only thrives if its participants consist of persons representing a wide variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. UCU awards approximately 60 scholarships each year to highly qualified incoming students who would otherwise not be able to afford a UCU education. These scholarships vary from partial scholarships of €3000,- to full scholarships of €12.500,- depending on the financial need of each student. Government subsidies do not cover these costs.
Have a positive impact on the life of a future student
Many potential students from disadvantaged backgrounds work hard to earn a well-deserved place at University College Utrecht, but with ever-rising living and study costs, they may feel that they simply cannot afford an education at UCU. By donating to the UCU Scholarship Fund you can have a direct positive impact on the life of a future student.
The UCU scholarships are funded from UCU’s resources, and by donations from students, alumni, friends and other stakeholders. Your gift is a crucial way securing the diversity of the college, one of our most important aims. 100% of your gift will be given to a student in need of financial aid.
