Funding Requests

Funding Request Form

Club Funding Requests

Funding Approval Process: 
  • Student Experience staff forwards Funding Request Form to the Treasurer and the Student Organization Committee members. They will add it to the Student Union meeting agenda for voting.
  • Treasurer emails and invites the Student Organization to advocate for their funding request. Attendance is not mandatory, but highly encouraged to answer any questions.
  • The Student Union votes on the request after reviewing the form.
  • Treasurer then lets the student organization know the amount that they were approved.
  • Purchases will be made by the Student Union staff advisor or a Student Experience staff member.  
  • Student Organizations may not exceed $1,000 per academic year 
    • If a student organization reaches or passes their limit, they will have to meet with the Student Organization Committee to discuss the impact of their events/spending on the CalArts community at large and the engagement of their members.
    • For larger institute-wide events, cultural identity groups are encouraged to partner with Campus Life’s Inclusion and Multicultural Coordinator.  
4 factors Student Union considers for funding requests: 
  • What category are they in? (Social, pre-professional, etc)
  • What is their engagement/impact level? 
  • How many members are they actively serving? 
  • How long have they been on campus?
