There are two steps that every student group must complete before applying for funds. After successful completion, that student group is eligible to apply for funds for the rest of the current school year:
Get certification at a Budget Training Workshop.
1. SGA Recognition: Funding from the Student Activities Fee is only available to SGA-recognized student groups. If you are unsure about your status, or if you would like to be SGA-recognized, contact the SGA Director of Student Groups, Huw Ball (UMDStudentGroups@gmail.com).
2. Budget Training Workshops: After receiving SGA recognition, a student group's Treasurer and/or President may become certified in the Finance Process by attending a Budget Training Workshop. Funding Requests may only be submitted by certified Treasurers or Presidents of SGA-recognized student groups.
All student leaders are welcome and encouraged to attend a Budget Training Workshop. Each workshop is scheduled to last about an hour. The Workshops for the Fall 2017 semester will be posted on the homepage when they are scheduled.
