The CUOS hopes to prevent the associations from getting into financial trouble, for instance because they’ve already spent money on speakers or rent. Their insurance doesn’t cover the costs of the cancellation. 

Apply

Association boards have until October 15 to apply for the remuneration. There are a few conditions: the event has to have been planned between March 12 and September 1, 2020, and its cancellation has to be due to the government-imposed corona measures. The boards will also have to show receipts for the costs incurred.

The CUOS and the board of directors have agreed that a maximum of 30,000 euros can be spent on the subsidies. 

Promotional video

The CUOS will also contribute two to three hundred euros to a promotional video that will introduce new students to the Groningen associations during the online KEI week. The video is being produced in collaboration with the online platform StappenGroningen.

The associations are funding the video themselves, with each paying approximately two hundred euros. Since the total wasn’t enough to cover the costs of the video, CUOS has agreed to help out.
