Program Fund

Andrea Gifford, Director of Student and Administrative Support Services, 581-4031

The Program Fund Committee provides funds for recognized student groups to sponsor campus-wide events and programs. If your group has an idea for an event but lack the money to put it on then these funds are for you! More than $40,000 is available for program expenses such as speakers, film rental, bands and musicians, promotion and advertising costs. In addition $23,000 is available to groups to cover 80% of the expenses associated with set-up costs provided by University employees and for campus facility rental. Groups must apply for these funds prior to their event and present their application to the Program Fund Committee at one of their meetings.

Applications are due one day prior to the committee’s meeting and can be picked up at the Division of Student Affairs Office or the Campus Activities and Student Engagement Office in the Memorial Union.

For paper copies of this application and for more information see Andrea in the Student Affairs Office, 3rd Floor, Memorial Union.
