COAL Programing Grants Now Available!

As of November 28, 2022, GSA will begin accepting submissions from our recognized student organizations for the COAL Programming Grant.

For context, COAL consists of the presidents of the seven UB student governments led by an elected chair who work on addressing UB-wide issues.  Recently, COAL received the interest proceeds for last year’s stock investments.  COAL now has ~$450,000 that they can award to student organizations as grants to launch new programs, expand existing programs, or produce publications.  Due to market fluctuations, past awards have been maxed at $1,000/grant or not been offered at all, so please take advantage of the current surplus.

If your student organization is interested in applying for a grant, please see the guidelines and application form.  All applications are due to GSA (via on Friday, January 6, 2023 at 11:59pm (no exceptions can be made).  Award decision notifications will be supplied by the end of January 2023 and any awarded grant money needs to be spent by May 15, 2023.

Please widely discuss this grant opportunity amongst your membership and with other organizations.  The more students that will be impacted, the more likely COAL will be to award a grant.
