Stand Out and Program (SOAP)

Substance Free Programming Fund

The Campus Center and Student Activities Department has been allocated money to broaden campus involvement and programming efforts for student organizations with limited or no budgets. We would like to encourage all campus organizations to apply for a mini-grant to compliment campus-wide social and educational programming.

To be eligible for a mini-grant, programs must meet the following requirements:

  1. Occur on Tuesday, Friday or Saturday nights;
  2. Be open to the entire campus;
  3. The application for funding must be submitted at least one month in advance of the event to assure adequate planning and publicity.

Mini-grants generally will not exceed $250.00 per program, although exceptions may be made if the application warrants additional funds.

The following will be considered in awarding mini-grants:

Preparedness:

Does the organization(s) have the resources to have a successful program?

Appeal:

Will the program appeal to a wide variety of students?

Uniqueness:

Is the group trying something new or expanding a current program?

Timing:

We have limited funds and these funds need to be dispersed throughout the entire academic year.

Resources:

Are there other resources available for the organization? Can these expenses be justified?

Co-Sponsorship:

Sponsoring the activity with more than one organization is encouraged (one application for funding per event)

Please note: Funds will not be transferred to the organization until the Campus Center Office is in receipt of the evaluation form. If necessary, special arrangements can be made.
