Standard and theme FIE call for projects - spring 2019 session

From February 10, 2020 to March 15, 2020

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 Université de Lyon 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. The Université de Lyon is issuing a call for projects aimed at boosting community life and supporting the various forms of student involvement.

Two potential sources of funds:

  • The “Standard” FIE: potential funding from €1,000 up to €7,500, not exceeding 50% of the project budget;
  • The “Theme” FIE: potential funding from €1,000 up to €9,000, not exceeding 70% of the project budget.
