Utrecht Network Summer Schools
Utrecht Network summer schools are, in principle, a joint activity of Utrecht Network members. The international Utrecht Network summer schools are organised by a consortium of Utrecht Network members, taught by staff from different Utrecht network members. An international particpation is guaranteed. Students of several Utrecht Network universities and the American MAUI network and Australian AEN network participate in these summer schools.

Utrecht Network Hopitality Fund
Each school (and there is a maximum of 3 per year) can use up to 30 grants of € 250 each per year (this is based on the number of full UN member institutions).
Each school (preferably its academic committee) decides on the allocation of the grants in a transparent manner:
- One student per institution has priority based on performance (and other reasons applicable for the purpose of the school).
- If no students apply from a specific UN institution, this un-used grant can be used for students from other member universities ranked lower than first. They will then be given to students from other UN member institutions where more than one student applied.
- The body who ranks the students (preferably the academic committee), allocates the grant with the consent of their home institution. Schools therefore first have to communicate with the UN home institution of the student selected before they contact the students. However, in case of disagreement between the school’s decision and the recommendation of the student’s home institution the final decision lies with the school.
- Once the students have started with the school, the school claims the HP funding for participants at the UN secretariat through the Task Force Summer schools.
