Mandatory Info Briefings

In order to receive an SAPFB funding application this semester, a representative from your organization must attend a mandatory Info Briefing. RIOs, Departments and Programs will be walked through the funding application process and go in-depth with the types of expenses the board can and cannot fund.

Mandatory Info Briefings will be conducted on a walk-in basis.

The Info Briefing is about 45 minutes. You must stay until the end and sign in afterwards to receive an application. No Exceptions.

SAPFB Mandatory Info Briefings

Info briefings for Fall 2018 funding have concluded. No further sessions will be scheduled.

Dear Prospective Applicant:

The purpose of SAPFB is to respond to the needs of all fee-paying students by providing financial support of co-curricular programs and activities planned and held by Registered Independent Organizations (RIOs) and University departments and programs.

Groups are allowed to submit up to three separate event proposals within the same application.

     2.) Submit a Funding Application*
               a.) Attach the Final Budget(s) for each proposed event (Budget Template/Instructions)

                         You may collate multiple events into one presentation
               c.) Sign up for Funding Hearing(s) for each proposed event
     3.) Attend your Funding Hearing!
               a.) Groups who qualify for a "Micro Award" requests of $1,500 and below per event do not need to attend a funding hearing

*To receive a Funding Application, a representative from the applying organization must attend a mandatory Info Briefing (see dates above).

After meeting with the representatives of the grant-seeking organizations through funding hearings, the SAPFB carefully considers each proposal, recommending the amount of funding each organization should be granted. Micro Awards (requests of $1,500 and below) do not require a funding hearing but are deliberated similarly. Recommendations are then forwarded to the UH Manoa Vice Chancellor for Students for approval. Once approval is received, SAPFB will notify the organization representatives of the necessary procedures to accept the award. For further award information, please visit our Awards page.
