The Graduate Student Council provides funding for recognized GSAS student organizations and groups. Funding is on a reimbursement basis. The guidelines presented in this section are intended to assist groups or individuals who wish to request reimbursement from the GSC for events, annual operating expenses, or start-up costs. Each request is considered on its own merits, and is subject to the budgetary constraints of the GSC. Funding is highly competitive and each request is considered on its own merits.
