To be eligible for funding, the project should socially 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.
ANNOUNCEMENT OF SELECTED PROJECTS
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.
If you have additional questions, please feel free to email us and ask!

→ Must socially engage with and benefit the Rietveld and Sandberg environment. It does not necessarily need to be corona-related! (thematics that we encourage: visibility, social engagement, cultivating care, creating platforms, initiating dialogue, community building, inclusivity, building a new social common and sustainability, amongst others)
→ Your project has to be realized between 1 March and 17 May in the Spring semester funding round, and between ? october - ? dec in the fall semester.
→ We are open to initial funding for longer term projects that may not immediately have an impact, but we must receive a clear plan.
→ 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.
→ Makes space for experimentation, failure, and projects with less tangible results.
→ Graduation and individual projects can theoretically be funded, as long they very clearly fit within the guidelines
→ There is no minimum or maximum amount you can apply for – the most important thing is the feasibility of your project.
→ Due to the current corona pandemic every proposal has to provide a clear plan how the corona regulations are going to be followed which will then need to be approved by GRA facilities. Keep in mind that the regulations might change between the time of application and the date that your proposal are to be realised.
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, they 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. If your application is successful, you will need to share with us documentation of your activities (posters, photos, etc.). The Student Council has a budget of approximately 10.000 € to distribute for the funding of student projects.
