No later than two weeks after arrival, bring Jitka Nohová all the documents you want to refund.

Finance

Financing of final and graduate projects

The MA DOT program students are entitled to financial coverage of costs related to semestral or graduate projects.

2nd-semester project: Each student has a budget of 3000 CZK. It is not possible to transfer unspent funds to the next semester.
3nd-semester project: Each student has a budget of 6000 CZK. Unused funds can be used by the student during the following semester.
4th-semester project (graduate project): Each student has a budget of 15000 CZK.
In the fourth semester, an additional amount of 15 000 CZK is set aside for each student to rent space for a graduate project.

Graduate projects realized in the theatre Disk are usually fully financed from the budget of the theatre Disk.

Rules for use of funds for a project

If you use funds from the MA DOT program or internal grants, and you will purchase materials or small services, always follow the instructions below: 

First, fill in the budget card, which can be downloaded here, and then send it to jitka.nohova@damu.cz. Funds cannot be drawn without a submitted Budget Card. 

Before you start shopping, make sure that the school does not already own the necessary materials or equipment and is not in its warehouses.
All requests for reimbursement of costs related to the creation of school projects must be substantiated by appropriate documents. 

If you want to buy food or drinks as consumables, always consult Jitka Nohová in advance. Purchases of alcohol, tobacco products, and fuels cannot be reimbursed in any way. 

Always consult the administrator of the PLATO rental system in advance when purchasing technical equipment (including cables, batteries, or light bulbs). 

All purchased material (including any unused materials ) and equipment is the property of the school. After finishing work on your project, store the purchased materials in the technology warehouse (room K 06) or in the material warehouse (R 109), but always in agreement with the relevant warehouse keeper.

Payments in cash or by your private credit card 

Always bring a receipt for shopping to Jitka Nohová no later than one month from the day when the purchase took place. Strict rules apply for the month of December - receipts will only be reimbursed until the 10th of December, not later in December or after the new year! The name of the shop/company must be stated on the receipt, including the address and ID number (in Czech IČO). If the receipt does not contain this information, ask the seller to stamp the receipt with this information. Jitka Nohová will reimburse you for the receipts right away, or she will arrange an appointment with you. It is also possible to receive a deposit from Jitka Nohová in advance.

Internet shopping 

When buying from e-shops, always choose cash on delivery and take care of taking over the goods yourself.

Contact details: your name / telephone / e-mail 

Delivery address: fill in the address where you want to deliver the goods - if it will be the address of the faculty, do not rely on the gatekeeper to take over your goods, but take care of it yourself! 

If you do not provide a school billing address, it will be a private purchase and the goods will not be reimbursed to you! 

Payments by invoice 

If you plan to buy a service, rental, or anything else that is issued by invoice, you must first make an order. The order and invoice must be issued before the realization of service, rental, etc. Always agree with Jitka Nohová or Kristýna Jalůvková on a specific procedure in advance.

Remuneration and wage payments

It is also possible to pay rewards to your collaborators on the project, but not to AMU students. Student collaborators can receive credits for working on the project. Get more info from Kristýna Jalůvková about this possibility. When your headteacher agrees to pay you a salary or a financial reward to your co-workers, contact Jitka Nohová or Kristýna Jalůvková. Always well in advance.

Internal competition

Full name AMU Internal Competition, Heading 3: Students' creative work aimed at innovating educational activities is a project competition for DAMU students, where you can apply for funding to cover the costs of your project. It is usually announced twice a year - in February and October. You can obtain funds only for projects that you implement beyond the scope of your studies, ie not for final, semester, and graduate projects that are an output of the main and compulsory subjects. Projects that have an output in a given calendar year can be supported. If you are interested in this Competition contact Kristýna Jalůvková.
