Financial & Organisational SupportWe know how ambitious students can be and we're here to help them. We can provide financial support to students or organisations, for projects such as social and professional events for students, or any other type of activities that improve the overall study environment.

During discussions between students at ITU it was identified that there was a lack of social and cultural activities that would connect students from different programmes and cultural backgrounds within ITU.
Therefore, SAF seeks to improve the social and cultural atmosphere at ITU. This is achieved through funding a number of events and activities that support the creation and strengthening of social connections within ITU. We are highly interested in platforms to encourage and support student-driven social initiatives.
We expect that the social activities we fund are aimed at all students at ITU and we hope that the initiative’s goal is to involve and benefit as many students as possible.
Please remember that SAF projects should be:
- Student-driven activities: You must be an active student enrolled at ITU
- Based on volunteering: You must gather and manage the volunteers for the project yourself
- Adding value to ITU student environment: Activities that can improve the image of ITU and it’s students
- Targeted at all ITU students: Any student from ITU can benefit from this activity
As SAF is granted the right to manage ITU`s sponsoring to student initiatives and since we are all a part of the IT University, it is of high significance to contribute to educational, informative and inspiring events and activities that help students develop their professional skills.
Teaching/Learning how to become better in design, become a better enterpreneur or software expert through high quality workshops is something SAF is continuously seeking to contribute to. We want to help students meet the other like-minded students who want to work on real life problems and build solutions or collaborate on projects.
Therefore, we fund events and workshops that provide access to new knowledge and teach how to develop certain ideas. Professional initiatives that we are highly interested in contributing to:
- Educational events
- Student-driven sessions
- Team building events
- Networking events
- Trade fairs
We have supported the activities of the following organisations
GATEWAY is a student-driven organisation that strives to create a welcoming, social environment for new and current students at ITU. They are helping students to connect with other ITU people outside of individual study programmes, based on mutual interests and through social activities.
Modem is a student driven organisation that hosts radio, makes podcasts and covers live events in and around the IT-University of Copenhagen.
ITU Innovators is a student driven initiative for entrepreneurs & innovators at ITU, working together to create a better environment to inspire, connect and share skills to become better entrepreneurs. They organise conferences, workshops and are running a student incubator for startups in ITU.
The IT University`s movie club arranges free movie screenings for students and employees. They advertise the upcoming movie in the newsletter readIT and on the calendars in the atrium.
