Our Stakeholders enable even more diverse activities for our members.

In the term of 2021-22, P&D is the largest representative group of JYY’s Council of Representatives with 12 seats! We aren’t politically aligned with any party and we’re part of the Järjestöjen Ääni alliance along with Alvarin Unioni (AU) and Luonnontieteilijät (LuoTi). In previous years, two group leaders were in charge of our group, but along with the changes in 2020, a chosen board will be in charge of our operations.

As a group of representatives, we are promoting issues concerning students and student organizations within JYU – we want to make students’ voices heard both in the student union and at the university. This is why it’s extremely important that we could hear your thoughts and ideas regarding student life. You can get involved in P&D and the Student Union, even if you are not currently in an elected position.

Group leaders: Hilma Hintikka (044 2729257) & Violan Halmetoja (050 5672691)

Chair of the Board: Aku Buckbee(050 4946 949)

The purpose of JSBE säätiö

The foundation was established in 2018 to support the students of JSBE, the university and Pörssi ry. JSBE foundation offers grants and scholarships for students and teacher to promote high-quality education and learning. The foundation was established in 2018 with funds from a memorial fund of Onni Sairanen and a donation from Pörssi ry.

What grants do they give to students? When?

The foundation provides grants for students as Pro Gradu-grant and Huippugradu-award. The application period for Pro Gradu -grant begins always in September-October, and more detailed information can be found via the foundation’s web pages. For getting the Huippugradu-award, the student doesn’t have to take any actions – your work is considered when you turn in your thesis to JSBE. The Huippugradu-awards are handed out in the beginning of the first (autumn) period.
