The Student Initiative Fund (SIF) exists so that individual residence hall students (not student groups, Residence Life & Housing staff members, or Complex Community Councils) can put on a program for their floor, building, or complex community. Planning and holding an SIF event is a great opportunity for students to have a positive impact on their community, and enhance their resume, all while having lots of fun at no or little cost to themselves.
SIF requests are reviewed once a week on Wednesday afternoons, so students are encouraged to submit requests at least one (1) week in advance of their requested event date.
You can request up to an additional $40 if your event qualifies for one of the following:
Reimbursement Form: A form is emailed to you automatically the day following your SIF program. If you do not receive this form, you can find the reimbursement form here.
All students are welcome to attend the SIF Council Meetings to help make allocation decisions and offer suggestions for program requests. Students are also encouraged to attend to present their SIF request for immediate feedback and approval notification.
Council meetings will resume in Fall 2017. We can't wait to work with you again!
