Registered Student Organisations / Funding
RSOs are organisations formed by students, both Graduate Student Organisations as well as mixed Organisations. RSO's have the priveledge of accessing funds for different activities which are of interst to their memebers and the general university community. These funds are administered by the Graduate Financial Allocation Committee (GFAC), a standing sub-committee of GSAC. GFAC handles financial matters brought before GSAC, including developing and managing the GSAC budget, and providing recommendations to GSAC regarding allocation of graduate Student Activity Fee (SAF) funds to Registered Student Organizations (RSO).
All application materials must be turned in ONE WEEK prior to the monthly GFAC meeting in order to be considered at that meeting. All late applications will not be considered until the following month's meeting, REGARDLESS of the date of the event for which the organization is seeking funding.
Organizations applying for funding MUST send a representative to the monthly GFAC meeting. Failure to do so will result in the proposal being tabled until the following month's meeting.
RSOs seeking funding must read all funding guidelines in detail. Proposals that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered for funding without revisions.
Proposals must be submitted electronically to: email@example.com.
Please send another email to inquire if your request was received or not. If you do not receive an email confirmation within two days, then your request might have not been received. It is your responsibility to check if your request was received or not.
