Funding Request Forms
SABRC Funding Process
If you are a registered student organization with Student Activities and are planning an event that's open to campus, you may request for SABRC funding. When you begin filling out the online application form, you'll need to select if it is a "General Event" (for general programs such as comedians, films, themed events, etc.) or "Capital Equipment" (for supplies (as defined in the policies page) for student organizations).
Please do not hesitate to reach out to the SABRC chairpersons or Student Activities staff before you begin filling out your request form if you have any questions or concerns about the application and/or proposed event. Additionally, please note that SABRC funding requests operate a semester in advance. This means when you submit an application for the late March deadline, that your event should be scheduled to take place during the upcoming fall semester or even next spring, if you have it prepared that far in advance!
Deadlines (No Late Submissions Permitted)
Online Application & Supplemental Materials Deadline: Tuesday, March 31 at 11:59pm
Supplemental materials are PDFs, word documents, PowerPoints and the like that provide additional background and support of the event(s) being requested. Note that this information will be reviewed by SABRC members individually and not displayed during the actual SABRC presentation. If you wish to provide supplemental materials, please email those to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline above.
Presentation Day: Saturday, April 11 (Time Varies: approximate 5 minute presentations from 1-6pm)
Those requesting funding will provide their availability within the last question of the online funding application form. They will be notified of their specific, scheduled presentation time no later than Tuesday, April 7.
Emergency Funding Requests
If your organization missed the deadlines for the standard funding weekend or has been presented with an opportunity with short notice (i.e. a performer routing through the Peoria area), you may submit a funding request anytime, which is titled an "emergency funding request." To officially submit an emergency funding request, you'll fill out the same online form above for standard funding weekends. From there, SABRC will review your application in person at the upcoming scheduled monthly meeting and you will be emailed shortly after the meeting whether your funding request was approved, adjusted or denied.
The final SABRC monthly meeting of the spring semester will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2015.
Do note the following policies and procedures regarding this process below:
- SABRC rarely funds events that are scheduled to take place less than 30 days out from the day they're reviewing the application.
- SABRC does not retroactively fund events. This means that if your event has taken place or supplies have been purchased already, you are not eligible for funding.
- SABRC strives to fund events that calculate to $15 or less a person, and SABRC reviews each event request assessing the reality of estimated attendance (based on previous, similar events).
- Student organizations do not present their funding requests in person at the meeting, so make sure you're extremely detailed in your request and supplementals.
- Email supplemental materials to the current chairperson.
CSBRC Funding Process (Club Sports)
Club Sports Funding may request for SABRC funding through a the Club Sports Budget Review Committee. Deadlines associated with this process will be shared in the coming weeks. This year, the application will be completely online, and the link to that form will be shared in the near future.
