University Community

Let's develop together

Any professor/researcher can submit a project to the Fribourg University Foundation at any time. 

If the criteria for a potential strategic fundraising project are met, the project will be presented to the Rectorate and, in a second step, to the Foundation Board. The Foundation Board meets twice a year, once in spring and once in autumn.

If the Rectorate and the Foundation select your project, you will benefit from the services related to strategic fundraising.

If your project does not meet the criteria of a strategic fundraising project, you can benefit from advisory services as part of university development activities.
