How Funding Works

Apply for GSG Funding

Put your student activities fee to work! Part of your student activities fee goes directly to a fund controlled and dispersed by GSG. Its purpose is to provide funding for both graduate student groups as well as individual students traveling to conferences, competitions, and other academic activities. All Northeastern graduate students are invited to apply.

 

How does this work?

Individual Funding: Attending a conference? Graduate students currently in good standing are eligible for up to $350 per academic year for reimbursement of conference expenses. Only individual funding requests have hard deadlines for application submission. Please also keep a note of the important deadlines for Individual Funding applications.

Student Group Funding: Sponsoring an event? Graduate student groups recognized by the Campus Activities and Program Office are eligible for funding to support events that enhance the graduate student experience. Funds are transferred to the student group’s SABO account after GSG approval. Funding applications must be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance of when you need access to the funds. For events requiring contracts, ticketing, or other components that require lengthy planning timelines, please submit your funding application at least 2-3 months prior to your event. Groups can receive up to $5,000 each academic year. For more information, please read the Student Group funding regulations.
