The GSC allocates roughly 20% of its budget to funding GSOs and other individual events. These funds are divided evenly into four installments (three-month cycles, beginning in July) from which funding is disbursed. Funding should primarily be requested by submitting a list of planned events - using the Priority Funding Request Form* (below) - for each cycle by the appropriate deadline listed here. These submissions will be reviewed by the GSC Executive Board and funds awarded based on criteria outlined on the GSC Priority Funding Request page.

Go to the Priority Funding Request Page

Funds remaining in each cycle after the Priority Funding disbursements have been made can be accessed by submitting the Alternate Funding Request Form* (online form, see below). This form must be submitted at least 10-21 days prior to the date of the event. Note that the most likely events/submissions to be funded are those made by the Priority Funding Request deadline, as most of the funds will be disbursed at that time.

Go to the GSC Alternate Funding Request Page

*Please note that each event/submission for both Priority Funding Requests as well as Alternate Funding Requests must be accompanied by one of the following Supplementary Forms at the appropriate time. Be sure to review all of the forms carefully and understand when they are due. The GSC is NOT responsible for late submissions and any resulting costs incurred.
