Student Org Grants

Annual Grants for 2022-23 are now closed as of Feb. 11th at 11:59PM

The ASSU provides a number of grants to support costs of VSOs, or voluntary student organizations, registered with the Office of Student Engagement.

What You Should Know Before Applying

  • There is NO RETROACTIVE FUNDING i.e. funds will not be provided for purchases that have already been made. Funds must hit VSO accounts before any purchases are made.
  • GrantEd is the application site for both Undergraduate and Graduate Grants. Visit the Undergraduate Grants tab on the left side of the screen for more information on how to apply for Undergraduate grants, and visit the Graduate Grants tab for more information on how to apply for Graduate grants.
  • *For quick grants, it's recommended to apply two weeks before event to ensure that funds will be in your VSO's account in time for the event. Funds are usually posted Wednesday following the Tuesday Senate Meeting.
