These awards are to be used for events or purchases that a GSA deems necessary for community building amongst their constituent graduate students.
Every GSA is entitled to a fixed amount each year, based on their student enrollment. The GSG Vice-President is in charge of allocating this amount to each of the groups, as well as notifying each group of their funding amounts.
There is no pre-approval required to use these awards. Groups can use their budget award in a single amount or as several smaller amounts throughout the GSG fiscal year. Group Budget Awards have no bearing on individual student awards.
