Funding Advisory Committee FAQs
How does SAS use Scripps student fees?
SAS uses student activities fees to serve the Scripps student body in two ways - through approved budgets for CLORGs and SAS positions and through the Funding Advisory Committee (FAC).
What is FAC?
The Funding Advisory Committee (FAC) is made up of the two SAS treasurers, the Student Investment Fund Officer at Large, the Motley Assistant Manager, and a Student at Large. The FAC reviews and approves funding requests that fall outside the bounds of approved CLORG or SAS budgets.
What are the rules that guide FAC decisions?
How do you apply for FAC funding? What sorts of projects can be funded?
To apply for FAC funding, please fill out the Funding Request Form. Your request will then be reviewed by the Funding Advisory Committee (which convenes every Friday) and you will receive an email informing you of your funding status decision by the following Monday. Keep in mind that you may be approved, but for a lesser amount that you requested. The email will indicate how much money you have been granted. FAC does not grant funding to events that have already occurred.
How do I submit a reimbursement request?
In order to actually receive the money you requested, you will then need to fill out a SAS Reimbursement Form or contact the treasurers at firstname.lastname@example.org to make the purchase for you. If you would like SAS to make the purchase, you must email at least 48 hours in advance.
How do CLORGs get funding for the following academic year?
In the spring, you must fill out a CLORG registration form in order to be registered with Scripps. CLORG registration forms are available in the Office of Student Engagement. You will then fill out a budget form that lists every event you plan to have that involves spending money. The more detailed you can be, the better! One or more representatives from the CLORG will attend the Scripps Budget Hearings (usually held on a Saturday in mid-April). Each CLORG has a 10 minute slot to talk about how they used the funds last year, plans for next year, and any important information regarding the CLORG’s proposed budget.
What other sources of funding besides FAC can I look for?
SAS Treasurers Bella and Reyna can help!
