A Culture or ActionS project has to be presented by a student registered in a higher education establishment, by a group of students or by a student association in order to benefit from a financial assistance.
Projects that are parts of the student course, or already made, the simple creation or the functioning of an association doesn’t enter into the Culture ActionS program. The same happens with school shows, the identical renewal of an action or the activities only athletic.
Furthermore, the project has to be supported by other public or private partners (material or financial help). The recipients of a Culture-ActionS co-financing commit to bring the CROUS logo out on the project itself and on every communication medium covering the project promotion.
