About Us

Leiden University Fund (LUF) was established in 1890 as an independent foundation to further the success of Leiden University. More than a century later, LUF is still committed to maintaining and enhancing the high quality of research and education at Leiden University. Where regular funding is lacking, LUF creates possibilities. We provide grants that finance projects conducted by Leiden University researchers, and we subsidise the appointment of LUF Professors. Students can apply for grants in support of activities that enhance their studies. In addition, LUF supports continued interaction between alumni and the university. All these activities have one common aim: to uphold the distinctive position of the Netherlands’ oldest university.
