SFB 2017-2018 Deadlines

Student Funding Board Deadlines

  • All Student Funding Board requests must be  prior to the event, there is no retroactive funding 
  • This means that you must submit an application before your event happens in order to be eligible to receive a reimbursement after your allocation has been sent by SFB (see below for timelines). 
  • Remember applications are not reviewed until after the deadline, regardless of when it was turned in. Applications must be turned in by 11:59pm (EST) of the deadline date. Applications are not reviewed on a rolling basis
  • Organizations submitting applications where travel is involved, you MUST build in enough time for when you apply to account for applications to be reviewed, receive an allocation, and to input travel into the University Travel Request System at least 7 days prior to traveling. 
  • Applications that need contracts will not receive allocated funding until contracts are input into the Dynamic Forms contract system.

Please keep in mind that when submitting your application, the committee will send out allocation information 10-14 business days after the deadline. Take the following timelines into account when applying:
