Funding You Board

The purpose of the Funding You Board is to create a student generated, dynamic, and diverse atmosphere on the Hiram College campus by providing students and student organizations with funding for various events and activities. There are two main ways that groups can request money. The first is through the Annual Allocation Process, this happens in the Spring Each year. Here you can submit your entire budget based on your status; $4,000 for Associated Student Organization and $2,000 for Registered Student Organizations. The second way to request money is through the Reserve Fund request meetings. This is the money left over from the Annual Allocation Process and is open for groups who are new or missed the deadline. There is only a limited amount of money in the Reserve Fund so it is encouraged that all groups be prompt with their requests. Both processes are outlined below.

Here are the new guidelines on how the Student Activities Fee is being spent, see where your money goes!
