Funding for Graduate Student Organizations

In order to serve the diverse graduate student population that pays a student fee, the GSG distributes money to graduate student organizations for hosting events. There are very few requirements for funding, aside from the most important one, which requires becoming a recognized student organization in the University's STARS system.

The application process is all handled online so that you don't have to walk forms over to our offices. Please read the following three sections which describe the process in detail:
