Student Funding Board

Description

Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) are able to apply for funding through the Student Funding Board (SFB). These funds allow students to hold events and programs sponsored by their organization. The SFB of George Mason University is a branch of Student Government and is comprised of three appointed Student Government members, as well as a representative from the Registered Student Organization Leadership Team.

**All Registered Student Organizations MUST apply for funds if planning on using SFB**

 SFB CHANGES FOR THE 2016-2017 YEAR

  • There is a $250 MAXIMUM per person for travel funding. This maximum is PER PERSON and will not depend on the organization, meaning that even if a student applies from various RSOs they will still be held to the $250 limit.
    • All members who receive travel funding must be listed on the organization’s roster on Get Connected
  • All events must be FREE and open to the Mason community; however, each RSO is able to request funding for one organization only program PER YEAR. This closed event cannot exceed more than half of the RSO’s current available funding.
  • Remember that all events held off-campus may be subject to review for a limited allocation
  • SFB will stick to the following meal limits when approving funding for food:
    • Breakfast – $8/person
    • Lunch – $10/person
    • Dinner – $15/person

  • There is a $25 minimum for ALL PURCHASE ORDERS
