Friends of UCR is an independent foundation, associated with University College Roosevelt. It is governed by a board consisting of UCR representatives, major sponsors from the foundation and UCR alumni.
UCR proposes excellent applicants in need of financial support; the Foundation Board selects the final candidates. A list of awards will be published annually on the Foundation’s website.
August 2004 marked the start of a unique academic initiative. An international liberal arts and sciences college was established in Middelburg, under the auspices of Utrecht University. The college provides and English-taught, challenging Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Sciences program, combined with campus life offering a range of cultural, sports and social activities coordinated by the students themselves.
University College Roosevelt, formally Roosevelt Academy, established itself as a prestigious and high quality educational institution, bringing a new dynamic to Zeeland’s capital, opening doors for its graduates in master’s and PhD programs at some of the world’s most prestigious universities.
UCR’s main purpose is not to pick and educate excellent students, but to produce excellent graduates, thanks to an environment that motivates students and faculty to get the very best out of themselves. UCR is:
A place of inspiration;
A place of hard work within a well-structured 3-year study program;
A place to generate ideas;
A place that stimulates individual responsibility and encourages initiatives for the common good.
