Donations and Grants

Our Universität zu Lübeck was transformed into the Lübeck Foundation in 2015, thereby joining the centuries-old, solid, foundation culture of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck. We view our friends and patrons as a live network that helps to connect young and old students, teachers and alumni.


In our knowledge society, science pervades all facets of our social and private lives. Science drives our personal, political and scientific decisions, thereby acquiring a high level of social responsibility. We accept this challenge at the Universität zu Lübeck, by facing our responsibility to future generations in a free world, regardless of their origin. Hence, support for our Universität zu Lübeck means an investment in:


  • Innovative research and education in the fields of medicine, natural sciences, informatics and engineering
  • Young, talented people, and
  • an innovative campus.


Adequate capital that provides guaranteed revenues is a prerequisite to ensure sustained and dependable growth of a foundation university. Therefore, one of our goals at the university is to solicit funding to stock up the foundation’s capital base.
