Funding Periods

Instead of submitting one yearly budget, student organization leaders will be able to apply for funds on a rolling basis. Revision periods will occur every two weeks. The following schedule is for the 2018-2019 school year.

UISG has strict guidelines on how much money will be allocated for each type of budget item. Please visit the Funding Guidelines page for this information.

Applications will be submitted using the Engage Budgeting System and will be due on the application due date [each one is a Sunday] at 5:00 pm. The portal will be closed during academic breaks. If you are in need of funding over an academic break, please contact the Director of Finance, Noel, at noel-mills@uiowa.edu. 

In order to submit a budget request to receive UISG funding, please use the following instructions.

Below is the schedule for application due dates. Applicants will be notified within 24 hours of the allocation meeting.
