The Undergraduate Senate Appropriations Committee is offering grants to student groups hosting new winter quarter events.
Similar to the winter quarter grant from last year, general student fee groups can potentially apply for up to $50,000 for new events.
“We’re targeting specifically for the winter quarter because a lot of groups do activities already for the fall and the same for the spring,” said Angela Zhang ‘16, a senator on the Appropriations Committee. “We just want to have something new and exciting for the winter.”
For events that have been held previously, the Senate is piloting an event bonus program that will grant up to $3,000 to improve attendance at group events.
Additionally, the Senate proposed last Tuesday to create a $20,000 Class Presidents Grant, which will allow the class presidents to apply for additional funding for class and all-campus events. This bill will be discussed in today’s Senate meeting.
