Prof. H.J. van der Maas Fund
In 1971 the Prof. H.J. van der Maas Fund was established in memory of the founder of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering with the help of a donation by the Fokker company.
The foundation has set itself the following goals:
- The promotion, in the broadest sense of the word, of Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft, and in particular the research and education provided by the Faculty of the same name;
- The promotion of successful education, in the broadest sense of the word, of the students of the TU Delft's Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, including the continued education of recently graduated engineers of this Faculty who wish to specialise further in this field.
Since its founding, many individual students, as well as the VSV Leonardo da Vinci Study Association, have received financial grants towards the cost of foreign internships, study trips and participation in symposia.
