The Undergraduate Organizations Committee (UOC) is the main source of funding for all registered student organizations on campus. It provides annual funding, in addition to support for special events. Additionally, the UOC acts as a liaison between the administrators and student organizations, runs the capital equipment rental program, and works to improve policy related to student organizations on campus.

To learn more about the hundreds of student organizations on campus, please visit the Student Organizations website.

The first round of funding for Fall 2016 will begin during the first week of September. The link to the grant application will be posted shortly. If you have any questions, please email the UOC chair at uoc@yale.edu.

UOC gives out three types of grants. See more information about each in the Grant Guidelines section:

  • An Administrative Grant is meant to aide in the upkeep and essential functions of a student organization (other than publications). Grants given under this type fund regular meetings and internal activities, among other things. There is currently a $400 Administrative Grant limit per established organization for each semester.
  • An Event Grant is meant to provide funding for events planned and hosted by all student organizations, and account for the majority of the UOC budget. These events must be open and free for the entire undergraduate population. There is no limit to an Event Grant, and the UOC will decide to fund events based on their scale and impact on student life.
  • A Publication Grant is set aside for organizations that release content regularly. Publications on campus should not apply for Administrative Grants.
