Requesting funds from the B or C pot

Does your activity meet the criteria for receiving funds from the B or C pot? If so, follow the steps below to request funding.

Before the activity

Discuss with your faculty assessor whether you can request funds from the B or C pot. If this is the case, he or she can advise you about the next step: submitting a request.

After the activity

After your activity, submit your funding request to your faculty assessor. Your application must include:

  • a breakdown of hours (based on a maximum of 140 available hours per month, of which no more than a quarter were spent in meetings);
  • a report on the activity;
  • the activity programme and number of participants.

The LAssO will review your application and issue advice to the Student and Educational Affairs department (SEA) concerning the awarding of financial support. SEA will then check that this advice has been correctly compiled and issue a definitive decision on the award. You will receive this decision by both email and post.

Next, complete these forms:

Submit the forms to the secretariat of the Study and Student Support Department, at Plexus Student Centre, or send them by post to: Secretariat SSS, Postbus 9500, 2300 RA Leiden (clearly stating: Financial Support for Student Board Members).

Deadline

The deadline for submitting your application is 1 August.

If your activity took place in late July or August, the assessor may extend your deadline to the end of August. Discuss this with him or her during your meeting.

Here below is an example of a report and programme for an activity, as well as a template for the breakdown of hours (both in Dutch). You can also ask your faculty assessor to assist you in formulating a good application.
