Grant Allocation Committee

The ASM Grant Allocation Committee is comprised of 9 UW-Madison students and is responsible for awarding grants to registered student organizations for travel, events, and operations. Funding for these grants comes from segregated university fees. Each year, the total funding available for each type of grant is jointly determined by the Student Council and the Student Services Finance Committee. Any registered student organization in good standing with Center for Leadership & Involvement is eligible to apply for a grant.

The ASM Grant Allocation Committee makes all decisions in a viewpoint neutral manner, as required by the United States Supreme Court. More information on viewpoint neutrality can be found here.

The ASM Grant Allocation Committee maintains its own Policies and Procedures. Once the academic year begins, these will be followed consistently for all applicants, and any revisions will not take effect until the following year.The Grant Allocation Committee also complies with UW System Administrative Policy 820, Segregated University Fees as well as, local, state, and federal laws.
