Step 2: Refer to SAC Guidelines

Read over the Funding Guidelines (PDF-1 MB) to make sure your event will be eligible for funding. These guidelines will also help in determining how much money your organization may be eligible to receive.

Once you have finished your application, bring it to DIGS 269 before the application deadline in the timeline above.

Step 4: Prepare for the interview.

Prepare to go to the Interview before the Student Allocations Committee. You should be prepared to answer questions about any of the following:

  • Your organization's complete Budget (including dues, fundraisers, and any other sources of income)
  • Detailed questions about each event and whom the event will benefit.

Step 5: Interview for SAC Funding.

Your organization will receive an invitation from the SAC Administrator to attend an upcoming SAC Interview. Make sure you show up to the your scheduled SAC Interview prepared and on time. The person that attends this meeting for your organization should be prepared to answer any questions that SAC may ask.

Step 6: If awarded funding.

Make an appointment with Student Engagement to arrange a time to discuss how to access your allocated funds. If hosting an event on campus please make sure to use the SAC logo. The SAC logo is available to download .

Make sure you fill out post event and post travel forms. Post Event Form. 

Step 7: If awarded funds for travel.

Once all travel restrictions are lifted, you will fill out a Travel Authorization in Student Engagement and turn in an emergency contact list before you travel. If a travel authorization is not received you will not be able to use your funds.  After the conference fill out and return the post-travel form. If seeking reimbursement for travel expenses, the reimbursement will not be processed until a completed post travel form is received.
