University Funds for Organizations
The University Funds for Organizations (UFO) provides funding to qualified Sul Ross student organizations for programs or activies. The UFO Committee may award up to $750 per semester to a group based on need, legitimacy, benefit and the organization's preparedness of the program or activity for which funding is requested.
Organizations must be registered with Campus Activities as an official organization in good standing and must be present at 75 percent or more of SGA meetings in order to request funding. Clubs are expected to continue participating in SGA after funding is awarded. Failure to do so may jeopardize future requests. SGA Congressional Schedule
Requests larger that $750 are rarely funded, but will be considered in special circumstances. A request which exceeds the $750 limit must be presented before SGA Congress to be voted upon.
Guidelines and Application
To apply, review the procedural information and guidelines, then submit a completed application.
The application must be typed. The SGA treasurer will contact the applicant to schedule an appointment to meet with the UFO committee, which runs separately from the SGA meetings. Officers and members of organizations (president and/or treasurer) need to be present at the meeting at which the organization requests money.
