The purpose of the grants given by the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY) is to equally support organization of and participation in different events by associations, student groups and individual students working in JYY’s domain. With the grants, JYY wants to encourage its members and the associations working in its domain to be active and to start new forms of activities. To support the actual operations of associations, the associations can apply for JYY’s general grant. The general grants are applied for in March and the application is announced separately.

JYY’s organizing and participation grants are applied for with their own application form. In connection with the reformation, the application process has been unified and the criteria have been changed. The criteria have been updated further in summer 2016, so please read the instructions carefully. JYY’s Board of Executives and personnel are more than happy to help with any questions related to grant applications.

Grants related to cultural events are also given by the Culture Committee of the University of Jyväskylä a few times a year. Check out the more detailed application guidelines.

The City of Jyväskylä annually gives youth grants, for which at least recreational associations are encouraged to apply. The period of applying is in January!

It is also worthwhile to become acquainted with grants for different foundations and trusts. The Association Information Service Jelli has done excellent job listing them.

General grant applications are next open in spring 2018.

There is a continuous applying period for the organizing and participation grants.

Get acquainted with the criteria for the grants in detail before applying and when necessary, contact the Member Services Secretary.
