Give to...equal opportunities for students

Still to go

from €15.000 (0%)

Higher education is not a possibility for everyone. Support from parents and one’s environment is not a given. Moreover, the gap in opportunities is constantly increasing. This is also true for ‘first generation students’. These are young people who are the first in their family to attend university. Research shows that they are often unable to pursue higher education because of various social and financial barriers. Our fund wants to make scholarship programmes available for these students. Will you contribute to equal opportunities for all?

About project owner Jo Ritzen
All donations contribute to the Jo Ritzen scholarship, which is intended for talented first generation students who wish to study at Maastricht University. ''In this way, we can make sure that everyone gets an equal chance to study,'' says initiator and Professor Jo Ritzen (r. in picture). Aylin Güney (l. in picture) received this year's scholarship. She is very happy with it: ''This scholarship allows me to focus on my goals and to forge my path!''
