The College of Engineering at Oregon State University offers engineering student organizations the opportunity to request funding for events, projects, or activities that (A) promote the mission of the College of Engineering, (B) enhance educational and/or professional opportunities for engineering students, or (C) have a tangible benefit to the College of Engineering including visibility, awareness and community involvement.
PLEASE NOTE: Only College of Engineering Sponsored Student Organizations (SSO’s) are eligible to request funding from the College of Engineering. Volunteer Student Organizations (VSO’s) and Non-Affiliated Student Organizations (NSO’s) are not eligible. Please consult the Student Leadership & Involvement website for more detailed information regarding student organizations at Oregon State University.
Request for funding proposals should be submitted to Dr. Scott Paja (firstname.lastname@example.org; Johnson 114) and must include the following:
*This may include departmental funding requests and should include an individual fundraising component.
Each organization is limited to one annual funding request per academic year.
Any funding request that involves individuals, companies, or organizations outside of Oregon State University must also include an “Outside Funding Request Addendum” and be submitted a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the event, project or activity for consideration. Failure to complete this addendum and receive the appropriate approvals for external solicitation, inadvance of solicitation, will make your club or organization ineligible to receive funding from the College of Engineering for a minimum of one academic year.
Funding decisions will be based upon:
REQUIRED PROGRAM EVALUATION
All groups receiving funding through the College of Engineering are required to submit a program evaluation at the completion of their event/program, no later than June 1 for programs spanning one or more terms during the academic year. This evaluation should demonstrate how your activity impacted either the College of Engineering, or students within the College of Engineering and should be formatted according to the evaluation process in your proposal unless an alternate format has been arranged.
For students attending a conference, an appropriate format may be a presentation to current students on important topics covered at the conference. For students hosting a conference, an appropriate format may be a report of what was successful and what needs improvement for a future event.
Any questions or clarification of this policy should be directed to:
