The Gerrit Rietveld and Sandberg Instituut have a number of internal funds and project-based funds available for students, such as the Profileringsfonds, Student Council funding and Extra Intra.
The school has a special fund that provides financial support for students, known as the Profile Fund. This is in accordance with Article 7.51 of the Higher Education and Research Act (WHW). The fund provides financial support in the event of a delay in study progress for a) students whose study progress is delayed through special circumstances, in the form of graduation support or b) as a contribution towards the institutional tuition fee for non-EU/EEA students or students who are taking a second Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. To apply contact the student counsellor for the application form and application procedure.
The Berlagefonds is the school fund of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie which is meant to support students when they really need it. With this fund, the Academie finances extra endeavours and special investments and expenses that are not or only partly subsidised by the government. Students can apply for funding in several ways. Each year, €6,000 is made available for final examination projects (Rietveld only). The student counsellor, Mirjam Mazurel, also has an amount from the school fund at her disposal, which she can use to provide a small amount of financial support to individual students.
The Student Council(opens in a new tab)
Each semester, thus far, the Student Council grants €10,000 towards collectively-oriented social projects in the school. You can apply alone or with a group of people, you can apply cross-departmentally, but it’s important that the project has a public programme or activities open to the community. The decision of funding a project is based on how well it fits within the guidelines. You can find out more information through the website link, and also see previously funded projects. Keep an eye out on your email inbox for the open call or email the SC for more information.
ExtraIntra(opens in a new tab)
Each academic year the Editorial Board funds a select number of year-long educational platforms developed by students, teachers, and workshop specialists that fits within the themes the board has outlined on the website linked above. Keep an eye out on your email inbox for the open call or contact them for more information.
