Financial Information and Budgets
In order to do the things you want to do with your organization - travel to conferences or competitions, host a speaker on campus, and more - more than likely requires your organization having the funds and means to do so. We’ve put together some resources together here to help you get started.
SGA funding information
An ISO may apply for a funding grant from SGA. A DSO may also apply for funds from SGA. For information about the different ways groups apply and utilize the funds please contact the Center.
Organizations can request funds for educational events both on-campus and for travel. All events must provide an educational benefit to the students of the university. On-campus events must be open to all students and free for students to attend. Your group can request a total of $1,000 or a maximum of $100 per student traveling each fiscal year (whichever is the least).
Submit your request at least 35 days prior to the event. (If the event is December 1-February 15, submit your request by the first Friday in November. If the event is April 1-September 30, submit your request by the last Friday in February.)
**Academic Competition Teams and Sports Clubs do not request funding through this form.
Diversity Programming Committee funding information
Registered organizations may also receive funding for events that have educational value that are intended to dissuade prejudice and discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, geographic location, or age. These funds are requested through the Diversity Programming Committee.
DSO Financial Guide
DSOs are part of the university, and their funds follow state guidelines. Here is information for you and your sponsoring department’s accountant.

Now that you have explored some different funding options on campus, you may need a way to help your organization budget for their year. We have developed guides for you to use to set up budgets for either specific events or for your whole organization.
