Frequently Asked Questions
- What happens if we don’t get 1 million SEK?
The money you donate to YIP will directly contribute to staff, course & contributors expenses already for the current YIP year. This means you are contributing to the actual current financial flow of the program. If we don’t achieve our goal we will have to decrease our expenses on the content and staff of the program. You money is well spent on the curriculum for the current participants!
- What is the money spent on?
Your money will cover the educational costs of the program, which under Swedish law cannot be charged to students. This includes staff wages, contributor honorariums, staff & contributor travel costs, etc. For more information you can look on our Finances page.
