Keeping Students Active
Student Organization Funding (SOF) is a process where student organizations and club sports can apply to receive funding for events and initiatives. This funding is made available every academic year and is funded by a portion of the Student Activity Fee, paid each semester by each full time undergraduate student.
SOF is intended to help alleviate any financial burdens students organization may have when it comes to funding events/activities. Funding is never guaranteed and student organizations must meet the necessary requirements to be considered for funding.
SOF policies have changed so please read carefully.
Most importantly, you must regularly review our funding policies in the required training link below. Whether you read them or not, we will hold you and your organization accountable to them. We never want to take action against your organization to enforce these policies, but to ensure the integrity of our process, we have to uphold these as fairly and equitably as possible.
Student Organization Funding?
SOF is a rolling process, which means allocations will be reviewed throughout the semester. Funds are limited and are allocated until depletion. Any request that is above $2,500 MUST be reviewed by Senate. Senate meets Mondays from 7pm to 9pm starting September 12th.
As a reminder you MUST apply at least 14 days before your event. Any requests made outside of that 14 day window may be rejected.
A FINAL NOTE: We anticipate receiving an estimate of $140,000 ($70,000 for club sports and $70,000 for non-club sports) for funding this academic year 2022-2023 which is a low budget (our revenue is based on enrollment). We do not anticipate having enough funds to cover all requests that we may receive (given that we have around 300+ organizations). Please know that a small award is not necessarily a reflection of the quality of your application or the importance of your programming; rather, it is likely due to factors far outside our control. Regardless, we hope that whatever we can provide is helpful to you.
