About us

Your donation counts, every year again!

The Twente University Fund dates back to 1948 when entrepreneurs and the authorities united to lobby for the establishment of a university college in the north-east of the Netherlands. The foundation also continued to support the university and its academic community after the Technical University College Twente was founded in 1961. Donations from the business community and private individuals make this possible. You make this possible!

You can read more about the history of the Twente University Fund in the book 'Aanjager' that the Twente University Fund published in May 2014. The electronic version of the book can be viewed at the bottom of the page.
