Hans Adriaansens Student Initiative Awards

In honour of one of the founding fathers of liberal arts education in Europe, the consortium of European Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences (ECOLAS) has created the Hans Adriaansens Student Initiative Awards. These grants aim to support projects undertaken by students that promote an ethos of academic community at a European Liberal Arts and Sciences program.

Academic community is an essential part of a Liberal Arts and Sciences education. Making students feel at home in their study program contributes to their study-success as well as their personal and social development. This sense of community is best fostered by students themselves, through student societies, extra-curricular events, and other community-based activities.

This year, ECOLAS will provide up to six grants of 500 euros each. ECOLAS is looking for creative, innovative projects and activities that seek to bring students closer to their social communities, outside of their academic setting. These should be undertaken by a group of students within student organisations or societies. Award funds are meant to initiate new projects or expand existing ones during 2020.

Apply through the 2020 Hans Adriaansens Student Initiative Awards application form by 15 February, 2020. Send your application to info@ecolas.eu. Information about the awards is published on the ECOLAS website. For queries, please contact Andrej Čierny (cierny@ecolas.eu).
