Study associations

A study association consists of students of a Fontys study programme whose goal is to make study time as fun and educational as possible! By organising various activities, such as excursions, drinks gatherings, lectures and getting to know companies, they connect students, the study programme and the field of work.

If you are active on a board of a study or student association or an umbrella organisation board, you may be eligible for a board scholarship: financial support from Fontys.

Study Association versus Student Association
The study association focuses on the professional development of students and is supplementary to the curriculum. Student associations are not affiliated with a specific study programme or field but focus mainly on socialising.

The umbrella association Federation of Purple Study Associations (FPSA) was formed in early 2020 to represent Fontys study associations and help them with issues they encounter. Consider making your own space for the association, financial issues, board changes, etc.
