2018/2019 call for projects: standard FIE & theme FIE - 4 panels per year

From April 10, 2019 to May 22, 2019

Do you belong to a student association and would you like to lead a project that would benefit other students at the Lyon Saint-Étienne site? The Université de Lyon can help you finance your project via the Student Initiative Fund (FIE – Fonds d’initiative étudiante) that organizes several sessions per year.

What is the FIE?

The Student Initiative Fund (FIE) encourages students in the Lyon Saint-Étienne region to get involved in community life by supporting local projects and initiatives for students. This call for projects aims to support a vibrant community life and student involvement.

During each FIE session, in addition to a “standard” FIE, a specific topic is highlighted in a “Theme FIE”, enabling students to apply for increased funding for their projects.

  • “Standard” FIE: potential funding of up to €7,500, not exceeding 50% of the project budget
  • “Theme” FIE: potential funding of up to €9,000, not exceeding 70% of the project budget.
