Graduate Student Advisory Committee

The Graduate Student Advisory Committee advises the Graduate School staff on issues of concern to graduate students. The committee also oversees the use of graduate student activity fee funds. A graduate student group (or an individual on behalf of a group) may apply for funding for an event that will benefit graduate students. Events should have educational value. Please contact the Graduate School or the GSAC representative from your college for more information.

If you or your group plan to submit more than one request for funds per semester, please submit the semester budget worksheet within two weeks after the beginning of the semester, or at the latest, submit it with your event funding request form.

Download the activity fee budget worksheet.

The event funding request form must be submitted at least two weeks before the event date. This deadline will be strictly enforced. If received less than two weeks before the event date, the request will be denied.
