The Student Union of University of Eastern Finland’s Executive Board announces that grants for the autumn 2019 can be applied for. The decision was made in the Executive Board’s meeting on 28.3.2019. The organisation grants are divided into general and project grants and for the autumn semester can be applied only for project grants.
Project grants are intended for Student Union organisations of all sizes to support projects financially alongside organisations’ own funding and possible external funding. Project grants can be granted only for those organisations where at least half of the members are members of the Student Union.
Projects grants are distributed twice a year: in autumn and in spring. Project grants can be applied for purposes such as printing quotas, organisational publications, events and Student Union facility rents. For autumn 2019, projects promoting sustainable development, internationality and teamwork of student organisations are emphasized when choosing the beneficiaries. Application shared by organisations works as a proof of a teamwork. The Student Union favors projects that are environmentally friendly and promotes equality, non-alcoholic and furthers healthy lifestyle and students’ working life skills. If food or drink is served, we require favoring Fair Trade products.
When Student Union is distributing the money, the priority order will be student organisations, clubs and lastly other campus organisations.
Applications for autumn semester 2019 projects have to be submitted electronically on the Project Grant Application form no later than 26.4.2019 at 23.59. The application must have a project plan attached which includes the project’s budget. All the attachments must be sent by email to Secretary for Organisational Affairs. Late applications will not be taken into account.
Once a project has been completed, the group receiving the grant is obligated to deliver a report of the project to the Student Union.
