This afternoon, KSU launched their new and improved Funding Programme for 2018 which aims to provide €60,000 and over in funds for students. Although the Council has scrapped it’s previous funding programme, the KSU Research & Opportunity Fund, the new funding programme ensures that more students will be able to benefit from the funds, as it includes funding opportunities for both international initiatives and research projects.

Amongst the new funds announced earlier today, KSU will also be providing financial aid to events hosted by student organisations both on and off campus, provided they are eligible and of an academic nature.
