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 oversees organization registration, 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.
Spring Round 1 grant applications are now open, and are due by Feb. 5. Applications are available on the Apply for a Grant page.
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 $500 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.
