Leiden University College The Hague
The LUC Fund supports the Leiden University College The Hague (LUC) programme and community. LUC provides excellent research-led interdisciplinary teaching on global challenges, equipping students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become socially responsible and engaged global citizens. This is more important now than ever before.
Welcoming all students to LUC
We believe that all talented students - regardless of their financial background - should have access to the Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) programme at LUC. Inclusion of students with a large variety of backgrounds and experiences in our community lies at the heart of our LAS approach and ambitions. The LUC Fund provides need-based financial support to students facing financial hadship, to ensure that they can fully concentrate on their studies and participate in all activities without stress about their finances.
To fully realize this ambition, we depend on your support.
LUC students are changemakers
Coming from a variety of backgrounds, what LUC students share is their motivation to contribute to a better world. They are selected for their academic achievements, but also for their commitment to and interest in finding solutions for the challenges our world is facing today. Students from all over the world bring crucial diversity in terms of language, culture, religion, lifestyle, economic background, and experience to our Campus in The Hague, enriching the educational experience for all. It is essential that students from all walks of life are empowered to join the community of LUC.
LUC alumni are active and successful in many different contexts and sectors, using their talents locally or internationally. Many are playing important roles in creating a better future for society, and we see our financial support recipients continue to thrive in world-class master and PhD programs and influential careers. LUC provided them with a solid foundation.
Your help can be the start of their future.
