RSO Fund Request
When your Recognized Student Organization (RSO) plans an event or wants to attend a conference, but needs additional funding, there are on campus funding sources available. Various departments or groups on campus set aside money to support RSO activities. These monies are a part of the following funds:
- Council of Student Affairs Directors (CSAD) Diversity Conference Attendance Fund
- Council of Student Affairs Directors (CSAD) Diversity Program Fund
- Pepsi Diversity Program Fund
- Pepsi Student Events Fund
- University Program Council (UPC) Fund Allocation Committee
In addition, individual colleges and academic departments may have
funds available for RSOs.
If you need help at any time, please stop by Student Involvement's city office (200 Nebraska Union) to speak with one of our SOAR staff members. There may be additional forms that you will need to secure for liability insurance, travel insurance, contracts, co-sponsorships, etc. depending on your event. The staff will inform you if and when you will need these documents.
The application process, guidelines, deadlines and requirements may be slightly different for each fund. The forms, guidelines and deadlines can all be found online. In order to find out which fund best suits your RSO’s needs, read more about each of them at the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs web site and the University Program Council web site. Additionally, you may want to learn more about requesting funds from colleges and academic departments.
