The Student Government Association has the ability to allocate funds to smaller clubs and organizations on campus who have expressed their need for financial assistance in regards to putting on programs and traveling. For such an important transaction between SGA and small clubs, there are strict guidelines that outline several requirements the clubs must follow in order to obtain financial assistance.
Below you will find two guidelines. One refers to a small club's request for financial assistance regarding travel. The other refers to a small club's request for financial assistance regarding programming costs. Please be sure to read over the guidelines thoroughly before applying or your request will be denied.
Small Clubs applications be found here.
