Operations Grants

Operations Grants provide funding for the routine operational and recruitment expenses of student organizations. Award categories include funding for postage, printing, office supplies, advertising, equipment and space rental, subscriptions, graphic and web design and other operational expenses. Any registered student organization may apply for an Operations Grant. The application for the following academic school year opens at the beginning of the Spring Semester. For example, you would apply for the 2017-2018 school year in the spring of 2017.

Applications for the 2016-2017 academic year are closed. 

Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year will open in December 2016.

For groups with space rental awards:  Any charges incurred before attending your group’s workshop will not be covered by the Grant.
