ASUW & GPSS Event Funding

The ASUW funding process is call Special Appropriations and the GPSS funding process is called Special Allocations. Both funds are intended for Registered Student Organizations (RSO) to supplement their programming and events. Funds should be used to benefit a cross-section of students.

GPSS Special Allocations

Applications for GPSS Special Allocation or GPSS Diversity Funding will be accepted until funds are depleted.
For additional information visit GPSS Funding or contact GPSS at

Please plan for two weeks of time between submitting an application and receiving an invitation to present to the ASUW Special Appropriations Committee or the GPSS Finance and Budget Committee.

Funding may be exhausted before the Committee is able to process spring quarter applications.
