Funding for Registered Student Organizations
The Student Organization Leadership Fund (SOLF) provides ASU’s registered student organizations access to financial resources so that they can provide programs and activities for the campus community. SOLF provides funding for activities that are over and above the routine needs of student organizations, as it is reasonable to expect organizations to pay for their basic expenses through dues, donations, fund-raisers and other methods of self-support. SOLF is primarily intended for those organizations that do not have access to funding from other campus departments or programs.
The SOLF program is designed to assist student organizations in the following areas:
- Sponsoring programs or events that enhance the social, recreational and/or academic aspects of campus life, and
- Traveling to participate in endeavors that contribute to the leadership or professional development of RSO members.
The Student Organization Advisory Council (SOAC) reviews and makes recommendations to the coordinator for student organizations and activities concerning requests for SOLF funding received from registered student organizations.
In addition, the SOAC makes recommendations for changes to SOLF operating procedures and the SOLF budget. SOAC is comprised of representatives from each category of SOLF-eligible student organizations and is chaired by the coordinator for student organizations and activities.
SOLF Applications for events or travel are reviewed once a week during the academic year by the SOAC.
