TCDSU launch ‘10K Have Your Say’ project

Council have released €10,000 from the HEA fund to invest in grassroots student initiatives

Trinity College Dublin Students’ Union (TCDSU) has launched a project entitled “10K Have Your Say”.

Council has released €10,000 from the Higher Education Authority (HEA) fund to invest in grassroots student initiatives. 

This project will offer students the chance to launch projects that will “enhance the student experience”.

TCDSU have highlighted that this “participatory budgeting” will give students the “opportunity to decide how student money is spent”, saying that it is “an empowering, civic-minded, transparent and inclusive model of budgeting”.

TCDSU gave examples of revamping student spaces, launching podcasts, running events, or procuring equipment as potential uses of the fund for successful applicants. 

Proposed projects must be “budgeted, short-term, achievable within one year,” as well as  “not-for-profit”.

TCDSU is inviting students to email applications and questions to [email protected]

Applications will close December 10.
