Special Project Commission

The Special Project Commission was created in order to support students with extraordinary projects. These are f.e. CD and video productions, the organization of events, festivals or concerts, and others - but important: not within a university course and being more than regular projects / events.

 

There is no deadline to sign up, but it is important to note that all requests for support must be made before the start of the project, due in part to there being certain restrictions and requirements that are attached to receiving support (for example, having to include the ÖH-KUG logo on a printed CD). The Special Project Commission meets multiple times per semester in order to review incoming requests. Normally, proposals receive an answer 6-8 weeks after submission.

 

Attached to the application must be a finance & time-table. A sample is attached to the application form.

Applications can be send via E-Mail or handed over to Sabine Hanner in ÖH-KUG office (Leonhardstraße 21) during our opening times: Monday - Friday from 9 am - 3 pm.
