2014-2015 Annual Funding

Applications for Student Budget Committee (SBC) Annual Funding are now available and are due by Sunday, February 2, 2014 by 11:59 PM. Late applications will not be accepted. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

It is important that you read the full instructions prior to submiting your application to ensure that your application is complete.

What is Annual Funding?
Annual Funding is the process for student organizations to request funding for the next academic year. Funds being requested now will be available July 2014 - June 2015. This is the only opportunity for organizations to request funding for a year-long budget. Annual Funding applications will be built and submitted through OrgSync. The Office of Campus Activities has prepared an instructional checklist to help you navigate the OrgSync process, linked below.

How to apply for Annual Funding
To complete the budget request you must be a member of your organization’s portal and have administrative access. It is important that you check that you have these permissions well in advance of the application deadline, as to ensure that you have the ability to learn the system and create your budget before the deadline.

Annual Funding requests must comply with the Student Budget Committee policies. Please be sure to review these policies before building a budget, as certain types of requests are prohibited by policy.

One member of your organization must attend an Annual Funding Help Session.

Organizations that have attended a Help Session and submitted the budget online, may sign up for a hearing by calling the Office of Campus Activities at 419-372-2343 or stopping into 401 Bowen-Thompson Student Union beginning February 3, 2014. This is a required step and necessary for your application to be considered complete! Please have your schedule ready when you sign up for a hearing time; hearings will not be rescheduled. Organizations must attend their scheduled hearing in order to receive funding; missed hearings cannot be rescheduled. Hearings are 10 minutes long if requesting less than $10,000 and 20 minutes long if the organization is requesting over $10,000.

Organizations should bring a printed copy of their budget with them to their hearing or a laptop in which they can access their budget. The SBC will not have a copy of your budget available for you during your presentation.

Annual Funding Checklist
A checklist has been prepared for your use. Please ensure you have included all details, as incomplete applications will not be reviewed. 

PLEASE NOTE: OrgSync does not have an Auto-Save feature. Please save your budget every 15-20 minutes to avoid losing your budget.
