Student Organization Funding

Student Government provides several channels through which student organizations may request funding for programming, activities and travel.

To review detailed information about funding and the funding processes, please review the funding manual

Allocations are provided by Student Government to recognized and registered student organizations. Allocations fund general non-programmatic operating expenses (office supplies, copying, printing, postage, etc.). 

Newly recognized student organizations may go to Get Involved and use the New Organization Allocation form to apply.

Requests for FY20 Annual Allocations were due by March 8, 2019 4:30pm.  If organizations missed the spring deadline, they may apply for single semester allocations in the fall.

Program Funding
Program funding is available for recognized and registered student organizations to execute an educational, cultural, or social activity/event that promotes diversity, unity, and campus life. The activity must occur on the SIUE campus.

Past programs for which Student Government has allocated funds include film rental, live speakers and entertainers, dances, and other cultural events. Funding for non-fundraising, on-campus service programs for students and university, leadership development, and other special projects also have been approved at the discretion of the Finance Board. Costs associated with such programs include technical and production fees, advertising and promotion, lodging, security and professional fees.

An organization wishing to receive funding from Student Government must first meet with the director of Kimmel Student Involvement Center.  They will then submit a Program Request Form to the financial officer and appear before the Finance Board and Student Senate. The Program Request Form may be obtained only after the meeting.

Travel Funding
Travel requests cover any costs associated with attending or participating in an off-campus convention, conference, program, or academic competition. Each recognized, registered student organization may be approved to travel once per fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).

Approved travel is limited to national conferences and educational opportunities consistent with an organization’s stated purpose. Student Government will pay for expenses related to lodging, transportation, and/or registration fees up to a maximum of $600 per organization per fiscal year.

To request travel funds, please fill out this form and return it to the Student Government office (SSC 1280). 

For the travel evaluation, please go to Get Involved to complete the form and submit online.

Eligibility information, detailed requirements and funding request forms are also available on Get Involved.
