Grants for SATY members

SATY awards grants for professional development to its members. Grants are awarded, for example, for further professional training, conference travel, publication costs, or the promotion of well-being at work.  

From 2024, the grants have only one annual application period by September 15. Decisions on the grants will be made in the October board meeting. In 2024, the SATY Board may award grants up to 2,000 euros. 

The board of SATY deliberates on the amount and size of the grants issued. Social and financial circumstances are taken in consideration when deliberating on the grants issued. Especially applicants, who currently are unemployed or are working on a grant, will be taken into account. The degree in which employed applicants can be supported with grants, depends on the total amount of applicants, the percentage of unemployed applicants, the size of the grants applied and the sum dispensed. The SATY Board will specify the purposes of the grants and awarding criteria, as well as the maximum amount of an individual grant (previously 500 euros) during the spring 2024. 

Information about the grant decision will be sent to the recipients personally, and the awarded grants will be published on SATY’s website. The grants are paid in October-November. 

The application grant is in effect for one application round. If an applicant isn’t issued a grant, the same application can be used on another round, if the application premises haven’t changed. 


How to apply

Fill the grant application form in which you will be asked to fill in the following information, among other things: the purpose of the grant applied (what, where, when and why), the amount applied and its portion of the total amount of the expenses. You will also be asked to elaborate on why you should be issued a grant. If the need arises, the board can ask the applicant for further information.
