The board of the Utrecht University Fund has decided to award the RechtOpLeren Fond (ROLF) to Karin Geuijen and Kinan Alajak from the English Academy for Newcomers (EAN).

The ROLF will enable EAN to make over € 12,000 available so that asylum seekers can benefit from a reduced admission fee during the academic year 2023-2024.
