Organization Funding

Graduate Student Senate Organization Funding supports the professional development of and social & speaker events for Kent State University graduate students.

The Organizational Funding Award (OFA) is awarded to registered student organizations serving primarily graduate student populations on a first-come-first-served basis. Those seeking the award must attend a Graduate Student Senate General meeting and present their proposal for event funding to the Senate, at which time the Senate will determine the need and eligibility of your event(s) to be funded. Funds will be disbursed only after a vote of the Senate.

This is NOT an individual award (will not be awarded to one person) - funds will be transferred to your department through your department business manager. 

If the request is approved, please submit a completed GSS Organization Funding Form (DOCX) along with original receipts and a sign-in sheet of those who attended must be submitted within 14 days of the event.
Please view our Business Manager list for more information and to contact your respective manager.
