BC Funding Guidelines and Policies_2014-2015.pdf

How to get funding:

1. Read through the attached guidelines and see if your request fits our funding criteria.

2. If it fits (no harm if you are unsure), submit an online request before each Wednesday noon.

3. Come to the BC meeting on Thursday of the same week, 7:30PM at Paino. Ask a friend or BC member to represent you if you can't come.

4. BC hears the request on Thursday, and decides if we recommend or zero the request.

5. If BC recommends, wait till the next Senate meeting (usually the following Monday) when Senate approves BC allocations, only after this can you spend the money allocated. Check allocations here.

6. To use the AAS Debit Card for online transactions or hotel booking, please email Alternatively, submit a check request with receipt if you paid upfront.
