Student Organization Funding Opportunity
The GPSA does not provide funding to GPSA recognized student organizations. However some funding is available through the Student Funding Board. This entity exists to provide funding to registered student organizations (RSO's) to develop or improve programs and initiatives as well as support organization development through conference attendance. Through funds allocated through the Office of Civic Engagement and Diversity, this committee strives to support registered student organization development and growth.
Funding Eligibility Requirement:
The Student Funding Board will accept applications from programs, events, and conferences that Registered Student Organizations wish to host. Only Registered Student Organizations are eligible to apply. A Registered Student Organization may only receive funds from the board once per academic year.
To be considered for any funding from the Student Funding Board, organizations must complete the student funding board proposal form that can be found on the UNLV Involvement Center under "Campus Links."
The board meets six times throughout the academic year (see dates below)
