Grant Applications

Every year ISYY awards general grants to organisations, and project grants to clubs and organisations. The purpose of the general grant is to financially secure the functioning of the organisation. However, the organisation is also required to use other means to raise funds for their activities.

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

The grants are awarded by the Executive Board based on the applications. The grant application periods will be advertised via the ISYY communication channels.

General Grants

  • The application period takes place once a year in the autumn.
  • The grant application is submitted via an electronic form. The application should be supplemented with relevant appendices, such as the organisation’s budget or financial statements.
  • The application period will be advertised primarily on the ISYY website, and secondarily in ISYY’s other communication channels.
  • General grants can be applied for by Student Organisations and Campus Organisations that have been approved and listed by ISYY.
  • At least 90 per cent of the organisation’s members must be members of ISYY for the grant to be awarded.
  • NB! ISYY Clubs cannot apply for the General Grants. Instead, Clubs are entitled to apply for financial support annually. ISYY Clubs will be notified about the application period for financial support via e-mail during the autumn semester.

Project Grants

  • Project grants can be applied for by Student Union organisations of all sizes to finance individual projects. Projects grants are distributed twice a year: in spring and in autumn.
  • The grant application is submitted via an electronic form. The application should be supplemented with relevant appendices, such as the organisation’s budget or financial statements.
  • The application period will be advertised primarily on the ISYY website, and secondarily in ISYY’s other communication channels.
  • At least 50 per cent of the organisation’s members must be members of ISYY for the grant to be awarded.
  • Project grants can be applied for the purpose of, for example, printing quotas, organisational publications, event organization, or to cover the costs of ISYY venue hire.Once the project has been completed, the organisation is obligated to deliver a report of the project to the Student Union. If the organisation in question neglects to report about the project, it will not be able to apply for or receive any other grants.
