The Student Life Fund is a tool used to promote student involvement, have more events on campus, and allows a chance for student organizations to fundraise. The Student Life Fund for the academic year has $20,000 allocated to it from the annual ASI & USU Operating Budget. Only chartered student organizations can request up to $800 per academic year to fund their on-campus activities.
The Diversity Fund is another opportunity for student organizations to get funding for their events. The student programs, events, fundraisers, or activities that will be funded must embrace and emphasize culture and diversity to the campus community. ASI has set aside $10,000 to help fund cultural and diverse events on campus. Student organizations can request up to $1,000 per academic year to fund their cultural events or activities. This $1,000 is separate from the $800 cap for Student Life Funds.
There are two sessions each semester to request funds from Student Life Fund and from the Diversity Fund.
The steps for requesting funds are as follows:
