Strengthening our reputation to stay competitive

Not everything that goes on at the University can be funded by the main budget. For example, many of FAU’s academic collections are made up of objects that were donated. Around 70 foundations, funds and associations support teaching and research at the faculties and offer scholarships for hardship or particularly talented students. Over 40 professorships at FAU are financed fully or partially by companies and research societies. And around 2000 students, graduates, lecturers, municipalities, companies and private individuals have come together in the University Association to support the University with their donations.

You can contribute to help the University strengthen its international competitiveness and reputation too – as an individual, association or company.

Information on donations covers the following areas. Some pages are only available in German.
