Funding For Student OrgANIZATIONs

GPSG and UISG (the undergrad student government) both provide funding for student org activities via the Graduate and Professional Allocations Committee (GPAC). 

The information below describes the application process, the review procedure, and rules and regulations related to funding. Funding announcements are posted on the home page.

If you have questions about how GPSG makes funding decisions, please email the Chief Financial Officer, Rondine Allen or the GPAC/JFC Chair Zac Builta; if you have questions about access to or technical issues with OrgSync, contact CSIL staff.


Academic Year 2017-2018 Student Org Budget Deadlines

Cycle Deadline Funding Recommendation
Funding Period 1 Friday, April 14, 2017 at 5pm Early Fall
Funding Period 2 TBD Late Fall / Early Spring
Funding Period 3 TBD Mid-to-late Spring

 In an effort to serve your student organizations needs GPSG will now be utilizing a funding model consisting of three equally funded periods. Each period, approximately $21,000 will be available for allocation. GPAC will be prioritizing requests based on dates of expenditures. Please use the guidelines above to decide when to apply for funding to maximize your chances of successfully funding your organization. Requests occurring outside of the recommended time period will be considered if funds are available. 


Applying for student org funding 

Step 1: Log-on to your org's OrgSync page

Step 2: If you don't have access to the treasury module on OrgSync, request it from a group admin (see video tutorial).

Step 3: Complete the budget application form (see video tutorial).

Step 4: Wait for the review committee's recommendation (see 'Review Process' below; video tutorial). 


Review process and Maximum Funding Standards (see video tutorial)

No matter whether your organization is predominantly undergrad, predominantly grad/professional, or a mixture of both, your application for funding will be reviewed by the GPSG budget committee, called GPAC (Graduate & Professional Allocation Committee). When GPAC reviews your application for funds, they rely on annually revised GPAC Tenets and Guidelines:

2016-2017 GPAC Tenets and Guidelines

You should use these this document to help ensure you have a complete, and realistic budget proposal. 

Priority will be given in accordance to where your organization falls (Priority 1 through Priority 5) in the Organization Priority List (download excel document).

The Final Decision

GPAC does not make the final decision on student org funding; they make a recommendation to the GPSG delegates, who are elected representatives of the graduate and professional student body. Because the delegates make the final funding decision, student orgs wishing to contest GPAC's recommendation must make their case directly to the delegates. In order to do so, student orgs must alert the GPAC chair of their intent to appear before the delegates via email at least 24 hours before GPSG is scheduled to meet (our meetings are posted here).
