Conditional Funding – Basic Funding

Clubs that applied for Basic Funding will be allocated their full amount for the Fall semester by 15 January given that the club submits all of their original recipes (in one PDF file) for Fall semester operating expenses by 31 December.

If a club fails to submit proof of expenses/receipts according to the 31 December deadline, the club will not be eligible to apply for Winter Semester basic funding.


Clubs that applied for funding through one of our grants will be allocated their full amount upon approval. When the clubs are allocated their funds, 50% of the allocation will be dispersed immediately. The rest of the allocation will depend on the successful submission of proof of expenses/receipts of club expenses. All original receipts/club expenses must be submitted by 1 April. All expenses must follow the club’s funding guidelines.
