Contact the Student Activities Grants Assistant at email@example.com with any questions. Student groups are encouraged to schedule a general advising meeting with their assigned Student Group Services Advisor for additional support.
This flowchart gives an general overview of the Student Activities Office Grants process. Groups that are considering applying should take a look to see what they can expect at each point of the process.
Student Activities Office Grant deadlines are very firm. Failure to complete all responsibilities or communicate with firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the deadline may result in grants being forfeited or a full reimbursement issued.
Student Activities Office grants are funded by 5 different initiatives. These 5 initiatives have different criteria for eligibility. If a group’s event qualifies for all initiatives, the maximum funding is $5500. The SEE Grant is given to one group a month and is in partnership with the Student Events and Entertainment team.
Groups should use this table while planning their event to know how much SAO grant funding the event is eligible for.
RSOs that have not applied for a Student Activities Office grant before and are interested in applying, submit this form. Submitting it early will allow groups to receive funding as soon as possible. This only needs to be submitted once for each group with an up to date W-9.
Groups that have received a grant in the past but have had a name change, or would like to receive funds via ACH (direct deposit), submit this form with an updated W-9.
Groups that are new to Student Activities Office Grants, or have had a name change, will need to submit an updated W-9 with their application. This can also be done prior to applying with the ACH/New Group Set-up Form. Submitting their W-9 as early as possible will help groups avoid delays in receiving their funds.
After a grant award has been communicated, a Statement of Agreement must be submitted for each grant that your group receives. This includes information about the group as well as the amount they have been awarded from each initiative.
All receipts must be compliant with these guidelines. Submitting receipts or invoices that do not align with these standards will not be accepted. Failure to submit acceptable documentation will result in a reimbursement from the group to Student Activities Office Grants.
Coffman Memorial Union's second floor is now the host of the Student Group Resource Center. They are open to student groups an have an inventory that is available to student groups to rent for their events.
