RSO Funding

About

The GPSA will allocate funds on an annual and semester basis to other Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) of Washington State University that will participate in the mission and goals of the GPSA by serving the interests of Members of the GPSA.

If you have any questions about the process, funding, rubrics, then please contact the GPSA Vice President (vpgpsa@wsu.edu).

*If your RSO is awarded GPSA funding, then please contact Brian Shuffield (shuffield@wsu.edu) to spend your award.*

See GPSA Purchasing Instructions for information on what the award can be spent on, as well as the forms needed to submit purchasing requests.

Eligibility and Purpose

To be eligible for RSO funding, an organization must be a Registered Student Organization (RSO) of Washington State University and the majority of its members must be Members of the GPSA.

Annual funding is intended to provide funding to RSOs that will plan and execute larger events that serve the graduate and professional students of WSU and foster connections with the WSU community.

Semester funding is intended to provide funding on a more flexible basis to RSOs that serve Members of GPSA in various capacities.

Funding Limits

Annual funding allocations have a minimum of $1,000 and a maximum of $2,500 for the academic year.

Semester funding allocations have no minimum and a maximum of $2,000 in total for both semesters. RSOs may receive semester funding allocations in any combination between two semesters as long as the total allocation is not more than $2,000.

No RSO may receive more than $2,500 in RSO funding within a single academic year.

RSO funds must be spent within the period for which they are allocated (academic year or semester). Any allocated funds not spend during that period will revert to the GPSA.

Please see the GPSA Bylaws (Article VI, Sections 3 and 4) for more specific information.
