Student organizations wishing to create an educational, cultural, or social event or activity that promotes diversity, unity, and student life for the SIUE campus community may request funds from Student Government for their program. Student Organization Program Requests are funded through Student Activity Fees and are administered through Finance Board and Student Government. An organization wishing to receive funding from Student Government must submit a Program Request to the Finance Board of Student Government and appear before the Finance Board and Student Government. Student organizations must be officially recognized for at least 60 days and in good standing with the Kimmel Leadership Center and Student Government.
Each recognized, registered student organization is permitted five Program Requests per fiscal year, with no more than three requests in one semester. Student Organizations are permitted up to a maximum of $7,000 per fiscal year for program funding, regardless of the number of programs funded.
Student Organizations wishing to apply for a Program Request need to meet with the Campus Programs Manager to set up an appointment to go over the procedure. The packet of information distributed to the student organization by the Campus Programs Manager must be completed, reviewed, and approved by the Campus Programs Manager no later than 10 weeks prior to the event date. Student organizations are encouraged to begin planning programs during the spring semester for the following academic year.
For more information about Student Organization Program Requests, please view the Funding Manual or the Student Government web site.
