Please fill out and submit the organizational funding form below if you would like to request funding. You must complete it well in advance (AT LEAST 3 days prior to the SCOMSA meeting before your event) of your event in order to ensure SCOMSA has time to meet and vote on your request.
SCOMSA meets once per month. Please see the SCOMSA meeting schedule to help plan out when you submit your event. SCOMSA will not be able to approve events between our monthly meetings, so take this into account when planning your event.
SCOMSA restricts funding to TWO groups per time slot. Please see the events calendar and the room reservation site to help you schedule your event appropriately. The first two groups to submit funding requests for a given lunchtime slot will get preference in funding. Any group after those two will not be funded, except in the case that a group can demonstrate very clearly that there was no other possible date for the event. Late submissions of funding requests will not be considered an adequate explanation.
Within 30 days of the event, the organization must submit a completed reimbursement form, along with all original itemized receipts, a SCOMSA approval email and a flyer or announcement for the group event. Please ensure that the name on the credit card receipts match the name on the reimbursement form. 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.
You must fill out the Event/Conference Details section. The form must be completed thoroughly and have all necessary items attached to prevent delays in reimbursements.
The complete packet must be provided to Liz Gallagher in the Office of Student Affairs located at in the A building, second floor, Room 212C. The SCOMSA treasurer will review the reimbursement form and then submit it to accounting. The check will be processed and be ready within 2-3 weeks, allowing additional time for mailing.
