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 an organization composed of representatives from various RSOs.  Members of the SFB are interviewed and appointed by the Associate Director of Student Involvement to ensure a diverse board that represents the George Mason University student population.

For more information about applying to be a representative for the SFB look under the drop down titled, Leadership Opportunities.  Positions are still AVAILABLE, if interested please email

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

SFB will be meeting weekly on Tuesday’s at 1:30PM


Information about required trainings and registering to attend can be found on the Fiscal Management section of the website.  Click Here

To better serve the needs of the Student Organizations, each member serves at least four office hours per week, which are held in the Student Funding Board (SFB) Office Room 2324 in the Office of Student Involvement. These office hours are designed to provide student organization leaders the opportunity to ask questions about how to properly submit requests for money, manage their funds, organize events and submit their proposals to the SFB. This schedule is subject to change, so check back regularly.

Please note: Due to the fact that the SFB members are also students, they do not serve office hours during the first week of classes (Fall and Spring) nor do they have office hours during the Summer.
