Fellowship

One of the Faculty Club’s (FC) aims is to provide a meeting place where UT staff can meet their colleagues and bring along their guests. Fellows of the Faculty Club Foundation have access to the lounge (Blomzaal), a private part of the FC where aperitifs are served. House wines and various other drinks are freely available. Outside the hours set aside for lunch and dinner, the room can be booked for work meetings, talks or discussions in small groups. A plasma screen is provided. FC fellows are free to bring along one or more guests from outside.

Staff

As a member of staff of the University of Twente, you may become a fellow of the Faculty Club. A fellowship card costs €50 a year and offers you the following benefits:

• access to the lounge (Blomzaal)

• opportunity to book the Blomzaal for lectures, meetings, gatherings, etc.

• opportunity to invite one or more guests to the Blomzaal

• opportunity to take part in activities organised by the Faculty Club Foundation.

Alumni

Alumni may also become fellows of the Faculty Club. The cost is €25. When applying (see application form), write ‘alumni’ in the box ‘staff number’, followed by the name of the educational programme you completed.

Institutes

A collective fellowship is available specially for institutes of the University of Twente. This type of fellowship is more than just a group fellowship. Institutes that become fellows may use the Faculty Club showcase to present their institute. We hope that in this way, the FC’s image will match the UT’s.

The three fellowship options are:

ARGON: This costs €2,500 and offers the following benefits:

• exhibition space in the central showcase in the cloakroom

• 20 fellowship cards, to distribute free of charge to UT staff

• 5 fellowship cards, to distribute free of charge to people who are closely linked to the institute but are not UT staff members

• institute’s name displayed at the entrance to the FC lounge

NEON: This costs €7,500 and offers the following benefits:

• group fellowship (all members of the research institute)

• exhibition space in a separate showcase at the FC

• 40 fellowship cards, to distribute free of charge to UT staff

• 10 fellowship cards, to distribute free of charge to people who are closely linked to the institute but are not UT staff members

• extra mention in brochures and other FCF publications

• institute’s name displayed at the entrance to the FC lounge

HELIUM: This costs € 10,000 and offers the following benefits:

• exhibition space in a separate showcase at the FC

• fellowship cards for all UT staff at your institute

• 10 fellowship cards, to distribute free of charge to people who are closely linked to the institute but are not UT staff members

• extra mention in brochures and other FCF publications

• institute’s name displayed separately at the entrance to the FC lounge

Faculty Club Sponsor Fellowship

In addition, we offer businesses and organisations with close links to the UT a sponsor fellowship entitled the ‘Faculty Club Sponsor Fellowship’. This costs €5,000, with an entitlement to 5 fellowship cards, exhibition space in the central showcase and a separate mention at the entrance to the FC lounge.

If you are interested or would like more information, please get in touch with Dave Blank, chair of the Faculty Club Foundation’s Executive Board (d.h.a.blank@utwente.nl).

Please note that there are only a limited number of showcases available. Institutes themselves are responsible for keeping their showcases in good order and up-to-date.

We look forward to seeing you at the Faculty Club!
