The Student Council is planning from now on to do a once-a-year funding round for student-led projects, which means that we will not be doing a similar funding round in Fall 2022. We will, however, launch a smaller funding opportunity focused on printed publications in Fall 2022 – we will announce the details for this funding later this year.
These are the guidelines for the Spring 2022 funding round, established by the members of the Student Council. To be eligible for funding, your project should socially engage with and benefit the Rietveld and/or Sandberg community. You can apply alone or with a group of people, you can apply cross-departmentally, with a research-based project or something less visible, but the project must have a public programme or activities open to the community. For this funding round we are looking for projects that will have a public programme that happens in outdoor spaces. The decision of funding a project is based on how well it fits within the guidelines below.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF SELECTED PROJECTS
11th of March
The Student Council is trying to make the application and funding process as easy and intuitive as possible through an ONLINE FORM.
To apply you MUST come to our open office hours. In these IRL meetings, we will make sure your application fits these criteria, offer feedback, and answer questions you may have. We will have open office hours in the week of Mon 28th Feb - Fri 4th Mar. Please sign up HERE to schedule an open office meeting.
CRITERIA for 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.
You can also see what kind of projects we have funded in the past here.
Any questions? Send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
→ The project socially engages with and benefits the Rietveld and Sandberg community.
→ The funding allows space for experimentation, failure, and projects with less tangible results. We are hoping for projects that are ambitious and community-oriented.
→ For the Spring 2022, we are encouraging projects that will have a public programme that happens in outdoor spaces. Please consider the availability and feasibility of using spaces within school with email@example.com before applying for the funding to check if storage or the location of your choice is available.
→ You can apply for a minimum of €600 and a maximum of €3000. You do not need to reach the maximum of €3000. When you submit your application, you need to inform the Student Council if there is any additional funding from other sources for the project. We will publish a spreadsheet template for the budget proposals, it’s mandatory to use the template and send it to us as a .XLSX document.
→ Your project receipts need to be sent in before the 20th of May. The project should be finished before the summer holidays.
→ Guest tutors and speakers can be paid maximum €200 for a half-day and €300 for a full day. Paying current students is NOT possible.
→ Does your guest need a place to stay? There are short-stay options through school. Please discuss this during the open office hours. Think about the climate! We prefer trains over planes and zooms over planes.
→ Equipment purchases are eligible as long as they are necessary for the realisation of your project. Equipment has to be returned to the Student Council so we can offer it to other students for future projects.
→ 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.
