Apply as an individual:

Are you a student who wants to create activity for other students? Great, Trivselsfondet would love to help with funding!

You can apply to Sammen's Trivselsfond for activities that creates social arenas for students. This can be to organize a BBQ in a park, quiznight with your class, renting iceskates, or something completely different! The important thing is that it creates activity, and that you invite someone you do not know very well. We will not support groups where everyone knows each other well from before, so use this opportunity to include some new ones!

Trivselsfondet wants to support low-threshold, creative activities. How much you get in support depends on what you want to do, and how in line it is with the fund's overall goal of creating new friendships. If you want to go on things like paintball or RiB safaris, you will have to cover most of it yourself. If, on the other hand, you are planning a Quiznight for a bigger group and want to buy pizza, we are happy to take a larger part of the bill.

If you want to organize a larger open event, such as a party for the whole class, a small-scale festival, or something completely different, we are also happy to read your application. The larger the event, the more comprehensive we expect your application to be. We expect you to attach an application letter / project description as well as a budget to the application form for more expencive projects.

 

How much funding can you get from Trivselsfondet?

Trivselsfondet funds up to NOK 150 per participant per day. For activities that require a ticket (eg paintball, go-cart, Høyt&Lavt, cinema, theater, RIB tour), we cover no more than NOK 100 per person. For food, we cover no more than NOK 70 per person / day.If you apply for funding to both do an activity and to buy food, we will pay a maximum of NOK 150 per person / per day.

For larger events, we will consider each application individually, but we encourage applicants to be cost-conscious and show so in the application.

 

Reporting requirements for individuals:

It is required that everyone must submit a report with receipts and photos from the event no later than 14 days after the event. Any profit must also be returned to Sammen. If this is not done, Sammen can claim back the entire allotment amount. A link to the reporting-form will be attached in the decision letter for your application.  

  

Apply as a student organization:

Are you representing a student organization and need funding for any of the following: 1) a small-scale socialactivity for students, 2) organizing a larger event, or 3) purchase equipment for the organization? Trivselsfondet is the place to apply!

You need an organization number to be able to apply as a student organization.

 

Reporting requirements for student organizations:

Student organizations must also use the funds in line with the decision, however all student organizations do not have to submit a report after the event.  Sammen will ask a random selection of student organizations to show receipts from the purchase. You may get asked to show receipts until the 31st of June 2022, and it is the organizations responsibility to save photos of the receipts until this point. The receipts must be readable and show the date of the purchase, what has been bought, and the costs.

  • Will it create activity for the student body?
  • Will it facilitate for the creation of new friendships among students?
  • Is it aimed at and open to large parts of the student body?
  • Of how good quality is the application?
  • Is the activity/investment well planned and reasoned?
  • For larger events: is there a plan for marketing the activity/event?

 It is not a requirement that all the criteria are met. Each application will be assessed on the criteria listed, and this will be weighted together with the costs.
