Each year COAL releases an application for a programming grant that is a joint collaboration between COAL and Faculty Student Association (FSA) that allows any recognized student government club to apply for a programming grant to create a new program, expand a current program, or produce a publication. This is an opportunity for clubs to create a large-scale program that impacts a huge portion of the student body, and it can be a great way to express your club’s creativity. Depending on the type of grant you apply for, funding can range from $5,000 to $45,000.
An important note, if you submit a grant and receive funding, you cannot change what items you proposed that you needed and you also cannot ask for a higher amount if the amount you requested and got approved for does not satisfy the amount for which the program would have cost so be very mindful in what items you mention.
Reminder : Applications are due on October 6th by 11:59pm so please give yourselves enough time to find product costs and make meetings with the GSA President and Treasurer to discuss your ideas because they will give the final go-ahead and signature prior to submissions and the overall COAL vote in October.
