The UCF Foundation was established in 2019 to make the Global Responsibility & Leadership bachelor's program accessible to students from all over the world, regardless of their financial status.

We believe that sustainable development can only be achieved by looking at contemporary challenges from different perspectives. These challenges need to be addressed by inclusive leaders who have been trained to integrate knowledge from different disciplines, cultures and backgrounds. We strive for a future where these research and learning opportunities are accessible to everyone, regardless of someone's financial background.

Our goal is to make research and education within the three-year bachelor of science in Global Responsibility & Leadership accessible to everyone and thus create a diverse learning environment. In the training, young people from different backgrounds are trained to take the initiative to connect global challenges with local solutions. We achieve our goal by raising funds for prospective students from all over the world and awarding scholarships to students based on need and merit.

Student Misha Haider explains why this is important:

Hi! My name is Misha Haider and I am from Pakistan. Presently, I am enrolled in the bachelor program ‘Global Responsibility & Leadership’, at University of Groningen.
After finishing high school, my focus on what I wanted to achieve in life was crystal clear. I wanted to acquire the skillset necessary for a professional career geared towards achieving a cleaner environment, absolute tolerance for diversity of opinion, greater gender equality and eradicating poverty and hunger through advocacy for social and distributive justice.

That was when I got to know about this new program starting at the university, which seemed really intriguing to me. Hence, today I am one happy and content student studying in what I believe. The ambiance of the campus and the people involved in building it are all very helpful and sweet which made me feel right at home since the beginning. The scholarship I received to cover a part of the living expenses acted like an added cherry on top.

What do we do with your donation?
With your donation we create scholarships for students who would otherwise not be able to study with us because their financial means are insufficient. We focus specifically on students from non-EU/EEA countries, because the tuition fees for them are € 12,600 per year (three times as high as for EU/EEA students).

Would you please help us? Any amount is welcome!
