The GSG offers funding for Graduate Student Events through the Events Board. Please see the Events Guidelines page before applying for funding. Our funding application is available through SAFE (Student Activities Funding Engine). Recognized graduate student organizations, please log in with your group NetID. If you are not affiliated with a recognized graduate student organization, then please email the Events Board (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a temporary group NetID in order to apply.
When does the Events Board meet?
The Events Board now meets virtually every other week. One member of the requesting organization must be present at the meeting when the event is to be discussed. Time slots will be assigned one week prior to the meeting.
Please note the recent changes to events allowed this year:
All student-led events and activities must be held virtually for the Fall 2020 term. Providing opportunities that contribute to the co-curricular engagement of graduate students remains at the heart of the Graduate School. Yet, the health and safety of our community can be second to none.
EVENTS & ACTIVITIES
