Funding

Your student group may request funding from the USGA to support your organization's semester events! The USGA biannually conducts a funding request cycle in the fall and spring semesters. 

To participate in the funding process, a representative from your organization MUST attend one of the three FUNDING INFORMATION SESSIONS. Even if your organization is considering requesting funding but not sure, please attend!

The same information will be covered in each of the three sessions, therefore it is only necessary to attend one session. If a representative from your student group or organization cannot attend one of the three sessions, contact the USGA treasurer for a private session as soon as possible (umb.usga.treasurer@gmail.com). Failure to attend one of the Mandatory Organization Funding Request (OFR) Information Sessions will exclude your organization from the funding process. The Mandatory (OFR) Information Sessions will be held:

  • January 30th at 12:30 pm in SMC 353
  • February 3rd at 12:15 pm in SMC 115
  • February 6th at 5:00 pm in SMC 353

Attend any ONE of these times.

Private sessions are available at alternate times including evening and weekends, by appointment. Please contact the treasurer to request a private session.

Attendants are encouraged to bring their own lunch.

The funding packet will be disseminated electronically by the USGA treasurer during each funding request cycle. Make sure you have read everything and filled out all of the sections completely. The application is due Monday Feb 10 at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST).

The Funding Presentation date is February 12 at 5:30 pm and the Voting meeting will follow on February 19th at 5:30 pm (Locations TBD). Attendance at these meetings is MANDATORY.

Additional information about the Organization Funding process will be provided at these information sessions. Please contact the USGA treasurer (umb.usga.treasurer@gmail.com) with questions or concerns.
