University Alumni fund
You can join the Utrechts Universiteitsfonds (U-fonds, only in Dutch). The Utrecht University Fund organises activities, subsidises student activities, awards scholarships and accolades, provides social support to students in financial need, establishes special professorships, and aids the university in its fundraising and sponsoring efforts. You can support the Utrecht University Fund by becoming a friend. This way you also receive attractive discounts.
Some of the events the Utrechts Universiteitsfonds organises:
- A special alumni event around the Utrecht University's Anniversary Day (dies), 26 March, including workshops for young alumni
- Refresher days & lectures in different cities in the Netherlands, during which alumni are informed of recent developments within their discipline and within Utrecht University.
If you wish to stay in touch with other alumni of Utrecht University, then there are several alumni networks you can take part in both for international students as well as Dutch students (in Dutch). Some Humanities programmes have their own alumni associations (Dutch).
