Senate Special Projects

Senate Special Projects are funding requests intended to benefit the student body that must be sponsored by a Student Government Senator.   The maximum for this grant is $2,500.

STEP 1: Find a Senator who agrees to sponsor your event or project.

STEP 2: Meet with your sponsoring Senator in the Student Government office and fill out the funding application.

STEP 3: Present the request in person with your sponsoring Senator at the next Appropriations & Revenue (A&R) Committee Meeting. These meetings occur on select Wednesday nights at 8:00 pm.  The schedule and deadlines are found here.  The contact listed on the grant application will be emailed with the meeting time and location the Monday/Tuesday prior to the meeting.

STEP 4: After your proposal is amended and/or approved, present the request in person at the next Full Senate Meeting.  These meetings usually occur the Wednesday following the Appropriations & Revenue Committee meeting that you attended.

STEP 5: If your proposal is approved by the Full Senate, you will need to contact Lynn Fresca within the next FIVE (5) business days. If you fail to do so, your grant will be voided.

Reimbursement Policy: Student Government funds organizations by reimbursement only. All receipts must be submitted to the SGA office manager within 30 days of the approved event, project or purchase. If receipts are not turned in within the 30 day window, the funding will be forfeited. Groups can only be funded once per fiscal year.

Prohibited Items: Student Government will not provide funding for the following items: food and beverages, non-university approved vendors, subscriptions, taxes, management or consulting fees, organizational membership dues, personal gifts, donations or contributions, financial aid, scholarships, expenses incurred prior to Student Government approval, all equipment, awards, trophies or prizes.
