The Student Council was originally formed with representatives from student-organized initiatives within the school, but we are constantly looking for fresh minds to join us. We want to engage and encourage students to play a more active role in shaping the school. Student voices are crucial! We see ourselves as a bridge connecting students, staff, and teachers with information and resources. This school is not just an assemblage of individual makers, but a place where we care for one another! As a council, we want to lend a hand, share knowledge, and listen carefully. Through our activities, we want to cultivate an even ground for all students and work for greater transparency within the administrative structures of the institution.

To be eligible for funding, the project needs to engage with and benefit the Rietveld and Sandberg. You can apply for multiple projects to be funded, you can apply alone or with a group of people, you can apply cross-departmentally. We will assess your eligibility based on how well they fit within our guidelines.

CRITERIA for projects:
Must socially engage with and benefit the Rietveld and Sandberg environment (thematics that we encourage: cultivating care, exchanging knowledge and culture, creating platforms, building a new social commons, initiating dialogue, community building, inclusivity and sustainability, amongst others)
Your project has to be realized between 28 October and 31 January, but the funding money has to be used by the end of this calendar year of 2019 (30th December) – you can pay for things in advance if your project is still running during the month of January
We are open to initial funding for longer term projects that may not immediately have an impact, but we must receive a clear plan that explains the project’s approach and reasoning
Equipment purchases are eligible as long as they are necessary for the realisation of your project
The project does not necessarily have to physically take place within the campus, as long as the impact of your project is clear and felt within the community
We encourage projects that make space for experimentation, failure, and with less tangible results
Graduation and individual projects can theoretically be funded, as long they very clearly fit within these guidelines
There is no minimum or maximum amount you can apply for -- the most important thing is the feasibility of your project

The Student Council has a budget of approximately 10.000 € to distribute for the funding of projects.

This criteria applies equally to all projects, regardless of whether it is proposed by an already existing collective or initiative, students or staff members. If a member of the Student Council is involved with an application she/he will not be involved in the decision making process for that application. If your project solely benefits your department, please contact your department head for funding possibilities. Please note that if your application is successful, you will need to share with us documentation of your activities (posters, photos, etc.).

We are aware that the deadline for proposals is very soon. In case you have an idea for a project but need more time to figure everything out, we encourage you to take your time and apply for the second round of funding which will happen in spring 2020.

The funded projects will be announced by the end of October. The Student Council is trying to make the application and funding process as easy and intuitive as possible for you. If you have any feedback, we are happy to hear about your experience.

Deadline for all applications — 14 October 2019 — No exceptions!
