Proposals are now invited for Core Council 2016-2017 academic year. Each year, the council receives many more requests than it is able to fund. Funding varies depending upon compliance with Core Council guidelines, merit, available funds, and the support of other funding sources. The council is comprised of student representatives from each of the ten college student governments. Core Council’s monies are comprised of student fees.
To propose for funding, events/projects must be held on dates that allow for prior review and decision by Core Council:
Winter proposals must be for events or projects completed on a date no earlier than April 23, 2017 and no later than June 9,2017.
