KY FOUNDATION

ABOUT GRANTS AND SUBSIDIES

The purpose of the subsidies is to support associations that promote the social, professional, intellectual, as well as study and student life related aims within the Aalto School of Business in addition to supporting the traditions of business students in Helsinki.

KY Foundation has few allocation clauses, but in general the KY Foundation grants subsidies to events, activities or clubs that are mainly organised by Aalto University business students and are organised mainly for Aalto University business students with well thought out plans, budgets and ambitions.

Larger the event, activity or club, or more it can reach the students of Aalto University School of Business, the bigger the grant usually is.

ASSOCIATION SUBSIDIES

The purpose of the subsidies is to support associations that promote the social, professional, intellectual, as well as study and student life related aims within the Aalto School of Business.

Association subsidies are meant for funding of planned events and activities that will be executed under the present year. They can also be granted for large or repetitive projects. An excess (i.e. own risk) is required by the applying association. Diverse fundraising is an element of high-quality operations and activities. The financial situation of the association will be considered when evaluating the application.
