The ‘Hooglerarenfonds’ (Professors’ Fund) has recently completed a successful direct mailing campaign. The aim of this action was to acquire new financial resources to support talented scientists. With a wonderful result. A total of € 17,981 was raised, donated by our UM professors. A part also came from Martin Paul’s farewell. Paul had promoted the ‘Hooglerarenfonds’ as a charity.

Grant applications can be submitted to the ‘Hooglerarenfonds”. This fund wants to provide broader support to talented young academics and to help this group in developing their scientific career. With this great amount, the ‘Hooglerarenfonds’ can once again fulfill this ambition. We thank all donors and involved partners for their great support.
