Hello Student Organization Officers,
We would like to to provide you with an update with where the ASBSU Student Funding Board stands financially. As stated in our email last week, we have allocated all of the joint grant funds for this year. Currently, we have approximately $24,000 available to allocate in the form of direct club grants and approximately $5,400 in individual student grants. That being said, ASBSU has closed the form for direct club grants because we currently have enough grants submitted by clubs to use the remainder of the funds. Please note that submitting a direct club grant request does not guarantee that you will receive full funding.
Again, thank you for all the hard work you have done for Boise State. We are happy to have funded over 140 student organization events and travels to conferences!
Thank you for doing great things on the Boise State campus!
Megan Buxton and Josh Ketner
ASBSU Secretary of Student Organization Affairs and ASBSU Budget Director

The Student Funding Board
The SFB is made up of the Ethics Officer, Budget Director and 3 students who are hired for the purpose of allocating funding based on grants received. The SFB meets at least once per 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.
Direct Club Grant
ASBSU has closed the form for direct grants for the academic year 2013-2014.
Direct Club Grant of up to $4,000, which is the total amount an organization can receive as a maximum for the year, are available to student organizations for events or activities they pursue by themselves.
Joint Club Grant
ASBSU has now allocated the full amount budgeted for joint grants for the academic year 2013-2014.
Joint Club Grant of up to $8,000 are available for events and activities when two or more student organizations are organizing the event or activity. Receiving a Joint Club Grant does not affect an organization’s eligibility for Direct Club Grants.
Individual Student Grant
Individual Student Grants have been available for students in the past are available again this year. If you have questions about the Individual Student Grants please contact Megan Buxton as they are more complicated to discuss.
