Would you like to become an active member of a university administrative or advisory body? Then you may well be entitled to financial assistance - in the form of compensation for board activities from Utrecht University.

Conditions for receiving an administrative grant

You are a member of a university administrative body and you are enrolled at Utrecht University for the same academic year.

How and when to apply for an administrative grant

Submit your application to the Faculty. Student members of the University Council are requested to submit their application to the Executive Board. Mid-July you will receive a reply letter.

  • application for the academic year 2018-2019: submit before 31 August, 2019
  • application for the academic year 2019-2020: submit before 31 August, 2020

Grant's amount

The Dean of the programme determines the grant's amount of the grant. The Executive Board determines the amount for student members of the University Council. The amount of the payment depends on the average time invested per week, coupled to a part of the maximum amount of the regular student grant on 1 January 2018 or 1 January 2019:

Extra allowance

Students receiving an additional grant may be eligible for an extra allowance as well. In this case the Dean or the Executive Board will ask you to submit the following:

  • a copy of your DUO notification stating the amount of the additional grant in September of the academic year in question.
  • a written statement from Student Services. You will get this statement when you hand in the original DUO notification to Student Services.


The total allowance is calculated as an annual fee, which will be paid out in equal, monthly instalments. This amount is tax-exempt.
