FY18 Request Template

Guidelines (info below is specifcally in reference to the COE funds, and NOT COE Schools or other sources):

  • Sponsored student organizations that have previously recieved support from the COE cannot be awarded less than 75% of the largest amount allocated by the COE to their group in the past 3 years (FY17, FY16, FY15).  
  • The maximum request for COE funds consideration is the equivalent of $125/member (ex: 10 members = 1250 max request of COE funds).  This maximum request would provide significant demonstrable alignment across all funding criteria.  
  • The majority of successfully funded requests are expected to be $50 or > per member.

Groups are required to maintain formal recognition by submitting annual agreements and all follow up reporting required by the SLI system via Ideal Logic.


Any funding request/sponsorship that involves individuals, companies, or organizations outside of Oregon State University are expected to coordinate their intentions prior to solicitation with Dr. Scott Paja (Scott.Paja@oregonstate.edu) utilizing the “Outside Funding Request Addendum”.  This helps ensure optimal success for Student Organizations in the COE.  Failure to do so in advance of solicitation, could result in loss of eligibility to request funding from the COE for a minimum of one academic year.
