We are hereby announcing the new application deadlines for funding through the Student Activities Fund. You are eligible to receive grants of up to 500 BGN for your extracurricular projects and activities through funding administered by the Student Activities Fund (SAF). The opportunity is open to all student activities, clubs and athletic teams at ACS, as well as seniors pursuing independent honors projects. The first deadline for applications is already November 06, 2016.
You will find the application form below.
SAF was founded by members of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) and the Alumni Fund Advisory Committee (AFAC) at ACS. As of last school year, FiBank has joined the effort in funding student activities.
Last year, SAF funded 18 projects over three funding rounds (one in the fall, two in the spring) and awarded grants worth 9900 BGN.
This year FiBank is especially encouraging student applications related to:
1) promoting wider participation in sports and athletics (charity sports events, open tournaments, etc);
2) improving financial literacy among ACS students and students and young people in general.
There will be three funding rounds this year, fall (application deadline: Nov 06, 2016), spring (Feb 2017) and SIHP (Jun 2017).
These are the latest and final documents that are being distributed as part of announcing the SAF's Fall 2016 funding round. The Powerpoint Presentation goes into more details about the fund and timetables. The Word document is the student application that must be completed and information on how to submit the form.
The SAF committee will consist of parents, alumni, faculty, Student Council reps, the Dean of Students, and representatives of FiBank. Below is the time table for the fall funding round.
We look forward to receiving your proposals and wish you good luck!
