FUNDING OF PROJECTS

In Autumn 2018 the APEEE Board approved new financial procedures for giving grants for projects.

In practice, this means that the APEEE will make a (semi-)annual call for projects from members of the school community based on a clearly articulated set of criteria. Projects will be decided on by the Board, generally based on a recommendation from the award's panel. There are also special urgent and simplified procedures.

It is hoped that these procedures will make APEEE spending more transparent and will encourage more people from across the school community to apply.

Spring Call for Project Proposals launched! Apply until 22 May 2020.

The Parents’ Association (APEEE) has earmarked 10000 EUR to (co-)finance school-related projects starting as early as September 2020 and as late as May 2021, with a maximum of 2000 EUR per project. Funding duration is one year after the start of the project.
