2012-2013 Funding Information
There will be a Finance Orientation session at the beginning of the semester for all organizations. Please do not ask for one-on-one sessions!
Due to the changes within the GSG administration, there will be delays in processing of applications. Please plan accordingly.
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 GPSS 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.
