UPDATE: We will no longer be funding per diem. Grants need to be submitted three to four weeks before the event or activity. Grants that are needed for travel need to be submitted six weeks in advance.
REMINDER: Clubs and organizations have the opportunity to receive but are not entitled to $4,000 per organization each year. We look for events that are unique and inclusive because this supports our values as your Student Funding Board. We also encourage fundraising events so that clubs can independently fund the day to day necessity of a club.
Check out our thermometer, it shows how much we have funded for clubs and individuals so far!
1. Apply here (Opens June 1st, 2014). Descriptions of the grants available are located at the bottom of this page. Grant applications are due by Tuesday at 5pm three to four weeks before the event or activity. For grants that include travel, please be sure to apply at least six weeks in advance so we can ensure a smooth process following approval.
2. A Student Funding Board member will be in touch with you shortly in order to schedule an grant hearing. Grant hearings are 12 minutes each, beginning with a maximum of a 2-3 minute description of the request and review of the budget. Hearings are held in the Leslie Webb Conference Room in the Student Involvement and Leadership Center, located above the Boise River Café.
3. Come on Friday at your scheduled time to the the grant hearing. Attire is casual. Please be prompt so we can remain on schedule.
4. Once your grant is approved, we will direct you to the Student Involvement and Leadership Center’s Financial Technician, Teri Rapp, to complete the necessary paperwork. An expense request will need to be completed to begin the process, which can be found here.
For regular events, we request that you get your grant request into us about 3-4 weeks in advance to make sure we have time to review it. If the event is more complicated and involves travel, large contracts with off-campus parties, etc., we would like to have the information 6-8 weeks in advance. This will ensure you have enough time to fill out all the forms needed by the University.
THE STUDENT FUNDING BOARD
The SFB is made up of the Ethics Officer, the Chief of Staff, the Secretary of Student Organization Affairs, and 4 students officers who are hired for the purpose of allocating funding based on grants received. The SFB meets once a week during the school year to hear grant requests. Individual SFB Officers work one-on-one with grant applicants to make sure that they are prepared for the grant review process.
