On Campus Event Funding

Please fill out and submit the organizational funding form below at least 3 days prior to the SCOMSA meeting before the event. SCOMSA meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month, so this means all funding requests must be submitted the Sunday before the meeting by 11:59 pm

SCOMSA will not be able to approve events between our monthly meetings, so take this into account when planning your event. (See the SCOMSA meeting schedule)

SCOMSA restricts funding to TWO groups per time slot. Please see the events calendar and the room reservation site to help schedule your event. The first two groups to submit funding requests for a given lunchtime slot will get preference in funding.

After 30 days of the event, the organization must submit the following items to  Liz Gallagher in the Office of Student Affairs:

The organization will only receive 50% of the amount totaled by the receipts, even if they were approved for more money by SCOMSA. Please indicate how the other 50% of the amount will be paid, whether out-of-pocket, your organization’s remaining lounge cleaning funds, or other sources of funding. The SCOMSA treasurer will review your reimbursement, and the check will be processed within 2-3 weeks, allowing additional time for mailing.

Organizational Funding Request Form

  • SCOMSA encourages groups to seek outside funding for the other 50% of your costs.

All groups are required to submit a blurb about the event after it has been held. Pictures are encouraged to be submitted with blurbs so the events can be reviwed here: http://www.bumc.bu.edu/scomsa/news/required-event-blurb/

The Alumni Association has the following link as a potential source of funding for student groups outside of SCOMSA.
