Frequently Asked Questions about the Student Activity Fee
Who may submit a proposal?
Any current student, faculty, staff, student organization, or committee may request funding.
Who decides which proposals get funded?
The SAF committee is made up of seven students and three staff. If you are interested in becoming part of the SAF committee, complete this application and submit it to one of the co-chairs. Applications are accepted year-round.
Are there any restrictions to what I can request?
Yes. Funds are to be used for student activities that are open to all students. SAF funds may not be used for fundraisers, personal gain by one or more participants, worship services, political events that support only one candidate, or events that have been conducted with general funds within the past three years. Other restrictions may apply. Please view the Student Fee Board handbook for further details.
When are proposals due?
Proposal due dates are listed on the SAF home page. Deadlines are strictly enforced!
Where can I get help with writing a proposal?
Proposal writing workshops are held at the beginning of each semester. Individual assistance is available at any time in the Student Leadership and Involvement office. Please call 814-898-6171 to schedule an appointment with Christa Morris or Ashley Kaminski.
