The UC’s Finance Committee is charged with the administration of the grants fund.
Upon submission of an application, all grant applicants are invited to an interview. Student groups will interview with two committee members, and those members will then make a funding recommendation to the whole committee.
The committee votes on each grant amount, and then compiles all grants recommendations from that week into a grants pack. This grants pack is then sent to the full Council, which must vote on it before funds are distributed.
After approval by the Council, upfront grants are cut by the Treasurer and distributed. Upfront grant recipients must file a Completed Project Form within 21 days after the event, and submit the form along with receipts to the Finance Committee.
Unlike upfront grants, retroactive grants are cut only after submission of the Completed Project Form and receipts. We require all Retroactive Grant Applicants apply for funding after their events have occurred and come to their interviews with their Completed Project Form and receipts compiled in order to expedite the funding process.
