From students for students: Cultural and social projects

Apply for project funding now!

Many students volunteer in various projects. In doing so, they often have to make tight calculation in order to be able to realize their intention at all. The Studentenwerk Potsdam promotes cultural and social projects of students for students.

In case you have a project that needs to be promoted, please read our directive (DE) in advance. Please send us the project application via E-Mail to presse[at]

Students from universities in our area of responsibility or their student representatives (AStA or Studierendenrat) can apply for project funds.

The Studentenwerk Potsdam supports cultural and social student projects outside university. We do not fund projects that are primarily created and implemented in the context of university events.

We have funded:

  • Sehsüchte - International Student Film Festival (Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF)
  • Werkschau - Annual Exhibition of all departments of the FHP (University of Applied Sciences Potsdam)
  • Golm rockt (University of Potsdam)
  • Deutsche Fußballmeisterschaft der Mathematiker (University of Potsdam)
  • Campusfest (Brandenburg University of Technology)
  • Löffelball (Technical University Wildau)

For applications of up to 1,500 €, the management of the Studentenwerk will decide on the project application at any time. In the case of larger sums, the board of directors will vote on it at the board meeting. When submitting your application, please bear in mind that the Board of directors only meets three times a year and that the documents must be received by us six weeks before the meeting.

Next meeting Board of Directors: 22.02.2021 (14.06.2021 / 22.11.2021)
