Student Organization Funding
Activities Fee Sources:
Every semester, Carnegie Mellon collects a Student Activities Fee from all undergraduate and graduate students attending the university. That fee is distributed among GSA, Senate, and the Joint Funding Committee (JFC) for allocation in support of student activity on campus. Allocations are available to support any one-time or first-time project or activity. Any student or student organization—recognized or not—is eligible for a special allocation. There are two processes by which student organizations can obtain funding from those committees:
- Petitioning the JFC for an annual operating budget, (must be a recognized student organization) and
- Petitioning the Senate and/or GSA special allocation committees for funding.
