LUF Impulse Grant

LUF has provided an LUF Impulse Grant of € 150,000 since 2019, which is intended for an interfaculty project relevant to society. Applications are assessed by the Committee for Academic Expenditure (CWB) of LUF. 

In the fall of 2023 two LUF Impulse Grants will be granted. Each faculty may nominate up to two projects. The criteria will be published in April and will be similar to the criteria of 2021 (you will find them on the right of this page or below on your smartphone).

The deadline for submitting the project proposals to LUF is 3 July 2023. Please note that the deadline for the pre-selection is earlier and is different for each faculty. Please contact the person coordinating the process within the faculty.  He or she is also the contact person for regular project grants from LUF.

Final report

You must submit a final report for your project within two months of the project’s completion via the final report form for this. The final report should contain a number of elements, which can be attached to the form: 

  • a list of expenses (please use the expense form)
  • a descriptive report 
  • photos of the project.

See the Criteria final report to find out what you need to include in your descriptive report. The final report will determine the exact sum that is disbursed and will allow the LUF to show donors and potential donors what their support has achieved. The report and photos will become the property of the LUF and may be used for publication purposes.
