Info session on operational grants for organisations

On what grounds does HYY decide the amount of money my organisation receives?
How could I receive a larger operational grant?
What do I do if our financial report or other financial documents are not ready in time?

The Financial Committee of the Student Union’s Board will be talking about the allocation of organisations’ operational grants and answering any related questions in Wilhelmsson Hall on Monday 19 February from 5 pm to 6 pm.

The info session will include information on the principles according to which the grants are allocated, how the allocation of operational grants is conducted and how you can attempt to increase the grant your organisation has received.

Questions can also be sent in advance to the chair of the Financial Committee at sara.jarvinen@hyy.fi

Unfortunately, the premises are not accessible.

WHERE? In Wilhelmsson Hall (at Mannerheimintie 5 A, 5th floor)
WHEN? On 19 February from 5 pm to 6 pm
WHY? Because HYY wants to give you money

Worried about a friend or family?

Together with the Finnish Association for Mental Health HYY and Nyyti ry offer a course in Mental First Aid for students active in organisations. The course, which is free of charge, is held on Oct 7-8 and it doesn't require any previous knowledge. Unfortunately the course language and its materials are all in Finnish. Let us know if there is demand for this kind of course also in English!

Have you encountered or witnessed sexual harassment during your studies?

The Helsinki Association of Women Researchers is conducting a survey on sexual harassment in universities. The survey is aimed at all students and personnel of the University of Helsinki, Aalto University and the University of the Arts Helsinki regardless of gender and position. It is possible to respond to the survey anonymously. The aim of the survey is both to gather information on harassment occurring in universities and student life and to explore people’s understanding of what sexual harassment is. Please answer the survey by 12 March 2018.
