Important decisions and announcements FB meetings August and September

The FASoS Faculty Board held three meetings on Wednesday 31 August, Wednesday 14 September and Thursday 29 September.


  • The Faculty contributes €1,500 euro to the organisation of the Founding Conference of the International Memory Studies Association.
  • For master applications for the academic year 2017-18, all non EEA candidates will have to pay a handling fee of €100.
  • A new procedure regarding the applications for the Research Stimulation Fund and the Valorisation Stimulation has been approved.
  • The Faculty Board approved the FASoS budget 2017-2021. The budget will now be submitted to the Faculty Council for their consent.
  • The Faculty will contribute €23,700 to a one year subscription on Project Muse (some 335 e-journals).
  • The Board decided to subsidise EuroMUN 2017 with an amount of €5000.


  • In 2017/2018 FASoS will offer three full Orange Tulip Scholarships (OTS) to students from Latin America and/or Asia.
  • A Working Group Education has been established. Its members are: the faculty director, the associate dean education, the head of the Office of Student Affairs, the chair of the Board of Examiners, and the head of the cluster Board & Policy Support and Study Advice (BBS).
  • Although the Centre for Contemporary Writing (CCW) organised several activities in 2016 (such as the minor Creative Writing, and lectures), it became clear that further development is not a priority at a time of high work pressure and limited financial resources. This has led the Faculty Board to decide to close the CCW. Relevant projects can continue under the umbrella of MACCH.
  • In 2016/2017 FASoS received from the SSC 65 administrative months for distribution among student representatives in Faculty Board, Faculty Council, and advisory committees, and for board members of study associations.
