Funding Topics

UISG does not have the funds to fully fund every organization on campus during each funding period. However, we do our best to meet the needs of student organizations. We advise organizations to look at other funding sources on campus (ARH, CSIL Grant, GIF), fundraise, and/or partner with other organizations. 


UISG will allocate equal amounts during each funding period. During funding period 1, approximately $60,000 will be available for allocation. Funding period 2 is expected to come mid-September and fund organizations for the rest of the Fall Semester. Funding period 3 will come late fall and is designed to cover the Spring Semester. Funding Period 4 will come mid-Spring. 


Please review FY18 maximum funding standards before applying for funding on OrgSync.
