Funding Committee

Chair 2018-2019: Katie Mertens (


The Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS) is a major source of funding for graduate and professional student organizations. The amount of direct monetary support is dependent on the current GPSS budget. In general, GPSS supports events, activities, and student groups that are inclusive of all graduate and professional students.

The GPSS Funding Committee is in charge of requests, decisions, and disbursements of these funds to graduate and professional student organizations. The committee holds bi-weekly meetings where all senators discuss and jointly decide whether and how much to fund each initiative, based on availability of funds.

If your group would like to apply for funding, please visit our Funding page for the  Funding Guidelines, Funding Application, and Reimbursement Procedures. Make sure to read and understand the Guidelines before applying for funding.
