Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) at UWM can apply for grant funding through the SA's Senate Appropriations Committee. Roughly $300,000 each year is awarded to RSOs to support on-campus events, operations, and travel opportunities. To apply for a SAC grant, student orgs must first attend a SAC-grant training where they will be given all the information required to apply for a grant. At least one officer must attend SAC grant training, feel free to bring as many members as you would like.
Groups that received funding for Marketing for Spring 2017 MUST use that funding BY April 15, 2017.
