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.
