2013-2014 Funding Information
Finance orientations are held at the beginning of the fall semester for schools seeking to be a recognized student organization at USC. If you have not completed the finance orientation, you must schedule a meeting with the Director of Finance to complete the orientation before you submit any forms requesting funds. If you have questions, please email the Director of Finance at email@example.com.
The Graduate Student Government oversees the funding of the graduate student organizations and individual student travel grants. Organizations must be officially recognized and have a representative at all GSG meetings to be considered for funding. Most funding is based upon the number of graduate students enrolled in a particular academic program. However, graduate student organizations may apply for additional funding by contacting the GSG office. Before applying for funding, the treasurer of the graduate student organization must attend a finance orientation meeting with GSG Finance Director. Dates for finance orientation meetings are held in the start of academic semester.
