The Office of Activities & Engagement (OAE) in conjunction with the Student Organization Funding Board (SOFB) distributes funds collected by the Student Organization Fee to registered student organizations for the purpose of providing programs, projects, and events that help the organizations succeed in meeting their goals and foster positive student development.
The Board of Regents passed the Student Organization Fee increase! Every student will now pay $6.20/semester and we will have TWICE the amount of money to allocate to student organizations!
Please read the 2012-2013 Student Organization Funding Report. 96 student organizations were funded this past school year!
We are no longer accepting Mass Funding applications.
We are no longer accepting 12-13 Rolling Funding applications. 13-14 applications will be available within the first few weeks of the academic year.
General information regarding Registered Student Organization Funding:
- Every student pays $3.10/semester as part of their student fees. This goes into the Student Organization Fee which is comprised of two pots of money, Mass Funding and Rolling Funding.
- Every spring, 2/3 of this money is allocated in the Mass Funding cycle for student organizations to utilize in the following academic year (i.e. 2012-2013). Applications for Mass Funding will come out in the spring. You must secure Rolling Funding (either this year or in the past) in order to be eligible to apply for Mass Funding allocated in the spring.
- 1/3 remains to be allocated in the Rolling Funding cycle during the academic year.
- Your student organization MUST be currently registered as a student organization with the Office of Activities and Engagement BEFORE you submit your funding application. This is an annual registration process. If your group has not registered yet this academic year, find an application HERE
