The Funding Process
The Informational Budget deadline for Fall, 2018 was April 27th at noon. The Informational Budget is now closed.
Organizations are required to complete an informational budget a semester in advance of when they hope to use USG funding. This budget is confirmed by the Comptroller. If your organization did not submit an Informational Budget, it will be “Temporarily Ineligible for USG Funding” and will have to meet with the USG Comptroller in order to be considered for funding.
You must be the current President or Treasurer to apply for funding for your Tier II organization.
» You must have an informational budget submitted before funding requests are submitted.
For questions regarding the Informational Budget please contact the Comptroller, Priyanka Thakkar at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
****IMPORTANT: Your complete and correct Funding Request will have to be submitted with all necessary quotes, event information, rosters etc. a minimum of 6 weeks before your event, or the date that your supplies/money is needed and within the semester funding deadlines set by the Funding Student Staff.
If your Funding Request is not correct a minimum of 6 weeks before your event or the date that your supplies/money is needed and within the semester funding deadlines set by the Funding Student Staff Supervisor, your Funding Request is in jeopardy of not being funded. Therefore it is recommended that you submit your requests earlier than the 6 week deadline so if there are any errors they can be corrected.****
After the Funding Student Staff reaches a decision, groups will be notified if they were fully funded, partially funded, or not funded at all. You must have a funding decision from the Funding Student Staff prior to making purchases.
