For Organisations

Apply for HYY’s operational grant and organisation paper grant


The Student Union can annually allocate operational grants for its organisations which are intended for supporting regular organisational activities. However, the purpose of the operational grant is not to finance all expenses caused by organisational activities but organisations are expected to be active in funding their own operations by collecting a membership fee, for example.

Allocating the grant is primarily based on the activities of the organisation which are evaluated based on the attachments delivered with the application. In addition to activities, the number of members, the management of finances and the need for support are taken into account. The Finance Board of the Student Union annually approves the conditions for allocating and using the operational grant. 

The operational grant is applied by filling the application form "TAHLO" (=  abbreviation for Toiminta-Avustuksen HakuLOmake, application form for operational grant) at If you have lost your username or password, contact the specialist for organisational affairs. The deadline for the application is Mar 1 2019. 

Documents required for the application are

-Budget 2019
-Plan of actions 2019
-Profit and loss statement 2018
-Balance sheet 2018
-Auditor's report 2018
-Report of activities 2018
-Calendar of past activities 2018
