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 2018-2019 school year in the spring of 2018.


The application for the 2018-2019 ASM Operations Grant will open on December 22, 2017.



The Student Org Fair is rapidly approaching!  If your group would like to access your grant award for Org Fair printing, you must meet with the ASM Operations Grant Financial Specialist by Friday, September 8th.  All print orders must be received by StudentPrint no later than Monday, September 11th at 8:00am, in order to be processed in time for the Org Fair.


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
