2019 Prize of the Foundations of the Heritage of ULiège

Every year, foundations from the Patrimoine de l'Université de Liège award scholarships to young researchers to highlight the quality of their research work. This year, more than €45,000 was awarded to 17 students and researchers from our institution.

P ublic institution created and endowed with legal personality by the law of 5 July 1920, the University's Heritage has received, over the years, donations or legacies from persons wishing to contribute to the development of science and/or the training of students. The Heritage Grants and Foundations Department allocates this income according to the donor's wishes to the award of scholarships, fellowships, prizes for scientific work, subsidies for the acquisition of teaching materials, etc.
