Grant Applications

Every year ISYY awards general grants to student organisations. The purpose of the general grant is to financially secure the functioning of the organisation. Copying quotas are automatically granted to all student organisations as they apply for the general grant. 

The purpose of the project grant is to financially support Student Organisation or Campus Organisation projects. The project grant should be used to cover project costs, but not to bring financial profit to the organisation in question.

ISYY clubs can apply for club grants to cover project or material costs for the club. 

Free use of the venues for other than project activities has to be requested from the Campus Boards. 

The general grants and the project grants are awarded by the Executive Board based on the applications. The Campus Boards decide on awarding club grants based on the applications. Project grants and club grants are applicable throughout the year. 

The application period for the general grants will be advertised via the ISYY communication channels. For more information about the grants, contact the membership services specialist in Joensuu or the organisational affairs specialist in Kuopio.
