Operations Grants

The ASM Operations Grant Application for the 2017 – 2018 academic year is now closed.



 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 2018-2019 school year in the spring of 2018.


Deadlines for spending your 2016-2017 Operations Grant funding:


Printing – All print orders must be submitted to StudentPrint no later than Friday, May 5th, 4:30pm.

Supplies – University Bookstore supply cards will be deactivated after Wednesday, May 31st.

Invoices – All invoices should be submitted to the ASM Financial Specialist for processing no later than Wednesday, May 31st.  Funding for any items received later than the stated deadlines is not guaranteed to be available.


If your group was awarded an Operations Grant for the 2017-2018 academic year, you will need to attend a grant workshop before accessing your funds in the fall. For groups with space rental awards, any charges incurred before attending your group’s workshop will not be covered by the grant.

All workshops will be scheduled individually and will take place at the ASM office, Room 4301, 4th floor of the SAC. Please include your group’s available times when inquiring about scheduling. Contact Ray Scanlon at ASM to schedule your workshop any time after July 31, 2017.   ray.scanlon@wisc.edu
