Funding

You say you fund events?

SAPFB will be accepting funding applications for Spring 2015 during the Fall 2014 semester. The application is now open!


New Funding Procedures (PLEASE READ!)

Mandatory Info Sessions

In order to receive an SAPFB funding application this semester, a representative from your organization must attend a mandatory Info Session. The purpose of the mandatory Info Session is to update groups on new funding procedures and application processes, explain what types of events and expenses the board can and cannot fund, and provide essential information to ensure applicants have the best chance of receiving funding.

Mandatory Info Sessions will be conducted on a walk-in. We encourage applicants to attend a mandatory Info Session as early as possible.

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. Each fall and spring semester, SAPFB invites groups to apply for funding for the next semester.

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

To apply for grant funding:
     1.) Submit a Funding Application*, including
               a.) Final budget for each proposed event (Budget Template/Instructions)
               b.) PowerPoint presentation (Sample PowerPoint)
     2.) Sign up for a funding hearing for each proposed event
               a.) Groups who qualify for a "Micro Award" do not need to attend a funding hearing

*To receive a Funding Application, a representative from the applying organization must attend a mandatory Info Session (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. 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.

If you have any questions, please email us at sapfb2@hawaii.edu.
