Student Organization Supplemental Event (S.O.S.E) Grant
For Student Organizations
The S.O.S.E. Grant was established by the Event & Conference Services Office in conjunction with the Commissions for Activities and Programs Fund (C.A.P.). These funds are completely separate from the funds provided by the Student Activity Fee Allocation Committee (S.A.F.A.C.) and serve as another avenue for student organizations to support campus events. The primary goal of the S.O.S.E. Grant is to support student organizations by providing monetary support for facilities fees on campus
Available Funding & Application Process
A maximum of $25,000 is available for student organization events this fiscal year. All eligible events will automatically receive up to $250 toward Campus/Auxiliary facilities cost while funding is still available. The grant will be applied after the event, and no application is required.
Note: Funding is allocated as the event occurs. Funding will apply to no more than two fundraising tables, per organization, per business week and four fundraising tables, per organization, per month.
