Funding Opportunities Through Student Activities 

The Student Activities professional staff understands that RSO's are always on the look out for ways to gain funds to help support the operations of their organizations. The great demand for funding got our team thinking and we have developed some incentive-based events for organizations that make them eligible to win funding if they do well. For all of the programs below the funding is as follows:

1st Place = $150

2nd Place = $100

3rd Place = $100

*Winning organizations must have an on-campus bank account (901 account) in order to obtain prize funding.
