The Mission

What are we doing to serve you?

SAPFB is the governing body that financially supports co-curricular programs on campus. These programs include, but are not limited to, Registered Independent Organizations (RIOs), University departments and programs, and the John F. Kennedy Theater. Established by the Board of Regents in 1982, SAPFB is one of 6 Chartered Student Organizations (CSOs) at UH Manoa and recieves its from student fees: $11.00 per semester and $5.00 per summer session.

Each fall and spring semester, SAPFB invites student organizations and UHM departments and programs to seek grants for projects and programs to be held in the next semester. Groups submit detailed proposals and budgets (see Funding page). After meeting with representatives from the grant-seeking organizations to learn more about their initiatives, Board members review and make recommendations as to the amount of funding to grant each organization. Recommendations are forwarded to the UH Manoa Vice Chancellor for Students for approval.
