Association Projects – The Results of your Donations

The Association Alumni Freiburg e.V. uses membership dues and donations to make studying conditions better, fund student projects, and honor student involvement.
Since its inception, Alumni Freiburg e.V. has helped to support numerous university projects. For example, it partially funded the establishment of the new Student Service Center, the expansion of the Uniseum, and the teaching pavilion on Schauinsland.

The university is shaped by its students and their activities. Numerous students are involved in social initiatives at the University of Freiburg. Their efforts serve ultimately to improve the overall conditions for studying at the University of Freiburg. Our students are also involved in social causes outside of the university, and their work also has a positive impact on the university’s reputation. Alumni Freiburg e.V. awards the Alumni Prize for Social Involvement to recognize these students for their efforts.
The Alumni Prize is awarded each year at the “Opening of the Academic Year.” The prizewinning initiative/person receives a prize certificate and a total of 2000 euros in prize money. The winner of the inaugural Alumni Prize in 2012 was the student helpline “Nightline.”

The Alumni Endowment: Donate and Become a Part of Freiburg’s Academic Future

A progressive university requires a growing support network. The alumni endowment creates an important connection between former and current students. You can create your own endowment for a specific department or project or donate to the general fund of the alumni endowment. We would be happy to allocate your donation according to your personal wishes.
To be a donor means to help shape our future. After all, the university plays a major role in defining many aspects of the city of Freiburg and makes a statewide impact on Baden-Württemberg’s educational landscape. It attracts academics and students from around the world and creates an open, international climate that encourages the development of friendships, research communities, and partnerships in various faculties.
You enjoy full freedom to determine which cause you wish to support: Whether you choose to contribute to the base endowment fund, support a scholarship, visiting scholar, or specific project or create an endowed professorship in your name, your financial contribution will have a long-term impact and yield good results.
We would be happy to advise you.
