Event Funding Process

Student-organized events are funded based on whether they are open to and beneficial to the entire student body. Examples of events include film screenings, lectures, concerts, conferences, etc.

There is no fixed limit on the amount of funds you can apply for for an event.  No alcohol will be funded. Ideally, if your event is very expensive, you would show proof of additional funding sources besides Student Alliance.


1. Review the Funding Process and Funding Guidelines.

2. Download Funding Proposal Form

3. Create a budget and fill out the funding proposal form.

4. Turn in your proposal to the Student Alliance coordinator at least 48  hours before the Student Alliance meeting where you will be presenting your proposal. Forms may be turned into the Student Alliance mailbox on 4th floor and/or emailed to studentalliance@ciis.edu. Please mark “IMPORTANT: TIMELY FUNDING PROPOSAL” in Subject Heading of your email.


If your event has been funded, you may also need these forms:

Contractor Invoice (for speakers, etc)

Funding Receipt Form (for after you get the funds)
