The Center supports student organizations with funding every academic year. Student organizations are able to request any amount of funding necessary and The Center is able to contribute as much as possible. Any remaining amount that cannot be supported by The Center will be forwarded to the relevant department for review. Departments that wish to support specific student organizations beyond The Center’s budget limit are encouraged to directly communicate with the organization to discuss the additional funds they can provide. It is important that the funding request align with the Department's expectations. If you are uncertain, please contact the Department Chief Administrative Officers (CAO). Moreover, you may contact your Department's CAO (listed below) to request for additional funding. The deadline for student organization funding request is Friday, August 9, 2024. Please note that funding is allocated for an academic year from time of acceptance. Carry over is not allowed if you do not use all the funds we allocate.
