Open Fund


The ASM Open Fund Grant Application

for 2014-2015

will open on July 25, 2014 



The ASM Open Fund is a program for Registered Student Organizations (RSOs). The goal of the program is to simplify the process by which RSOs can use small amounts of grant funding from ASM for routine operational and recruiting purposes.  With the Open Fund, RSOs eliminate the hearing process, simplify the application, and have funding available throughout the year. All groups can receive a maximum award of $200 from the Open Fund.  The grant funds are allocated on a first come, first served basis and may run out.

The $200 award is distributed to the following funding line items:

$150 in printing (from StudentPrint)

$50 in supplies (from the University Bookstore)

  • The 2 main grant contacts will also receive an email from ASM requesting their attendance at an Open Fund Workshop - the workshop MUST be attended in order to access the grant funds.
