Request Club Funding
All graduate student clubs and organizations chartered by the Graduate Student Association may request funding from the GSA Club Fund, which is derived from graduate student activities fees. Most requests will be reviewed within a few days; larger requests, including those that require a vote of the GSA executive board, may take up to one month to process.
Guidelines for Funding
- Clubs and organizations must be open to all graduate students.
- Where possible, clubs and organizations should include all members in decision-making and financial matters.
- Club funds must be allocated without unfairly favoring any member or members. When an activity or event is limited to a small number of members, an open selection policy shall be employed to determine which members attend. All members should be given a fair and equal chance to participate in events.
- If, at any time during the semester, a club fails to meet any of the aforementioned rules, or if any of its activities violate the fair use of funding policy, the GSA Executive Committee has the right to rescind or cancel approved funding for that semester.
Funds are set aside every year for club and organization use and are distributed in a fair and impartial manner. Requests that have a high-benefit/low-cost ratio are generally looked upon most favorably. Requests of more than $100 must be approved by the GSA Executive Committee.
