Cultural funding

We invest in culture

Studentenwerk Chemnitz-Zwickau provides material and organisational support for different local student associations and clubs at the Chemnitz University of Technology and the University of Applied Sciences of Zwickau. We also provide funding for sports and cultural groups as well as one-off cultural or sports events.

To apply for funding, please submit a completed application form (PDF 75 kB) along with a brief explanation of your project and a financial plan.

To help you with your application, the Cultural Commission has provided a set of guideline (PDF 83 kB)s. Read them carefully and make sure you know the deadlines.
