To be eligible for funding, your project should socially engage with and benefit the Rietveld and/or Sandberg. You can apply alone or with a group of people, you can apply cross-departmentally, but it’s important that the project has a public programme or activities open to the community. The decision of funding a project is based on how well it fits within the guidelines below.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF SELECTED PROJECTS
12th of November 2021
At the Student Council we are looking to support collective practices that will challenge and improve the educational experience within the academy. We are looking for projects and initiatives that can create possible examples and platforms for other ways of making and doing art and design.
This round, we are thinking BIG. We want scale and ambition, projects that dream big. It may be daunting, but we are here to help you. Whether a semester-long lecture/workshop/event series, an educational platform, a reoccurring market, a publishing house, institutional interventions… you name it! Let’s get your ideas funded and realised, our community needs them. We are looking for project proposals with a budget of up to €3000. The purpose of our funding is to support community-oriented projects, and now more than ever, we see the necessity to re-think many aspects of the way our community functions and how we can best support it.
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 environment.
→ The funding allows space for experimentation, failure, and projects with less tangible results. We are hoping for projects that are ambitious and community-oriented.
→ You can apply for a minimum of €1000 and a maximum of €3000. If you have an idea for less than €1000, please contact us and we will try to connect you with other students so that you can apply collectively.
→ When you submit your application, you need to inform the Student Council if there is any additional funding from other sources for the project.
→ Your project receipts need to be sent in before 31 December. The project, however, can run into Spring 2022, as long as the receipts have been received by the Student Council.
→ Equipment purchases are eligible as long as they are necessary for the realization 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.
→ If your application is successful, you will need to include the Student Council logo in your communication to students, as well as share with us documentation of your activities (posters, photos, etc.).
→ By participating in this funding round you agree to participate in a number of meetings and workshops with the Student Council that will support you in the realization of your project. For example, we will be hosting an introduction event where we will go over the funding booklet which explains the ins and outs of the financial administration and documentation system, as well as an end-of-year borrel with all those who were funded.
→ The Student Council is trying to make the application and funding process as easy and intuitive as possible through an ONLINE FORM. Please attach to the form a filled-in budget template, which you can find HERE (the tab ‘template example’ shows an example of a filled-in budget).
→ We will also have open office hours on October 28, November 1, and 4 between 12h-14h. These office hours are intended for IRL meetings on an appointment basis to discuss your project and to get advice and feedback on your application. Please sign up HERE to schedule an open office meeting.
