We have made changes the the 2023-2024 Funding Request Model. Beginning this academic year, The Center will be able to support a maximum of $1500 for each student organization per academic year. This means that student organizations can still request funding exceeding $1500 on their funding request form. However, our office will only be able to contribute up to $1500 to each organization's budget. Requests above $1500 will be forwarded to the relevant department (Chem/Biochem, Math, Physics, Astrophysics) for review. Departments that wish to support specific student organizations beyond the $1500 limit are encouraged to directly communicate with the organization to discuss the additional funds they can provide.
