University Community

Let's develop together

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

If you meet the criteria for a potential strategic fundraising project, your project will be presented to the Rectorate and 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 an advisor for university development activities.
