Fund Allocation Committee (FAC)
If you are a Recognized Student Organization (RSO) at UNL that is seeking funding for an event, we encourage you to apply for Fund Allocation Committee (FAC) funding. Keep in mind FAC was created to help fund smaller and newer RSO’s who are in need of financial assistance. The funding is allocated on a first come first serve basis. FAC will start accepting applications for RSO funding for events occurring during an academic year beginning on August 1, 2021 and closing on May 1, 2022
- Is your event open to all UNL Students?
- Is your event more than 30 days away?
- Do you need up to $1,500 to fund your event?
If these questions apply to your RSOs event, then FAC funding could be a great opportunity for your RSO. Up to $1,500 can be allocated to your RSO by following the application steps below. Funding will be anonymous and your RSO can receive funding once every two years.
How to Apply
Your RSO must be in compliance with ASUN Student Government and must do all your banking through the Student Organization Financial Services (SOFS) office to be eligible for FAC funding.
Once your application is received, the Fund Allocation Committee will ask a representative of your RSO to be present at an FAC meeting to discuss your RSO event and the funds being requested. Meetings typically take place on Tuesday evenings.
After speaking with your RSO representative, the members of FAC will discuss and vote on funding for your event. The Director of Student Involvement must also approve FAC’s suggested allocation. Your RSO will be notified on the status of your application shortly after.
Following final approvals, a transfer of funds will be made to your RSO SOFS Account only after you have submitted copies of all bills, invoices, contracts, and/or receipts pertaining to the allocation. Your documentation must be submitted to the SOFS office in 200 Nebraska Union within thirty (30) days following your RSO event. If this is not done within this time frame, your RSO funds will be made available for other RSOs.
In order to be eligible for future FAC funding, your RSO must complete the Post-event Evaluation Form and submit it within thirty (30) days following your RSO event.
Any funds granted to an RSO by FAC shall not be used to finance political campaigns or speakers of a political and ideological nature. The funds shall not be expended for wages, office supplies, student travel, or student lodging.
