Funding for study activities

As an IT-student at SDU, you can apply to It-vest for funding academically relevant activities, such as participation fees, expenses related to your study projects and similar. You can apply alone or as a group, e.g., fund a group project, participation at a conference or similar.

You can apply for:

  • Studying abroad
  • Participating in conferences, where you present your work, a paper etc.
  • Study-related events
  • Study-related projects, trips, seminars amongst other

When you apply, you need to argue for the academic relevance of the activity that you're applying for and get a recommendation from a study leader, teacher, academic coordinator or similar. It-vest accepts and handles applications on a continuous basis; therefore, submit your application well in advance.

Your application should at least include the following information:

  • Who is applying (name, study programme, university)
  • Contact information of the applicant (name, address, email)
  • What are you applying for (activity, time, place; if relevant, names of your fellow applicants)
  • The academic goal of the activity
  • Required sum and budget – specify the budget with sums and categories of your expenses, e.g. transportation, accommodation etc.

Your application must contain a recommendation from a study leader, teacher, course coordinator etc. to meet the requirements. Such recommendation can be sent from the person's email along with your completed application directly to It-vest. Otherwise, it should be a document signed by your study leader, teacher, subject coordinator etc. attached to your application.
  • It-vest doesn't cover costs related to work placements (internships)
  • Do not include CPR-number, CV, transcript of records, diplomas or certificates
  • If you had a conference paper accepted, attach it to your application
  • If relevant, send information about other sponsors
  • If you apply for an activity where it is possible to advertise It-vest's activities, e.g. logo on a website or presentation slides, sharing flyers or similar, please state that in your application.

When your application is ready, send it to It-vest. It can take several weeks for your application to be processed; therefore, submit it well in advance.
