Financial Affairs Committee

“The fundamental purpose of the SGA Financial Affairs Committee is to act as a source of financial aid and guidance for registered student organizations, student-led university programs, and organized club sports at YSU. The committee reviews applications submitted by these entities, meets with knowledgeable organization representatives, and deliberates on the amount of funding needed for the event as well as SGA’s ability to provide said funding. Our funding recommendations are then approved or denied by the SGA Legislative Body. With our budget increasing over the years to over $130,000, we can now provide more funding for opportunities than ever before to assist the various student-led organizations on campus thrive.”
