6 Apply for HYY's furniture grant

 

HYY supports furniture purchases for the interior decoration of organisational facilities. The grant is mainly intended for the furniture purchases of the organisations which operate in HYY's facilities, and the grant is mainly directed to the purchasing of tables, chairs, cupboards with locks and other interior supplies. When evaluating the applications, we pay attention to the fact that  furniture increases the cosiness of organisational premises and the organisations are willing to look after their premises even better.

The furniture grant is annually allocated in two periods, in the spring and in the autumn, according to submitted applications. The furniture grant of the autumn is paid at the beginning of December but you can already submit applications. The deadline for applications is 30 Nov 2013.

Applications which specify the need for furniture and formalities connected with purchases can be sent by e-mail to jarjestosihteeri(at)hyy.fi or by mail to the address Helsingin yliopiston ylioppilaskunta, PL 1099, 00101 HELSINKI
