Community Initiative Funding


The funds present an opportunity for students to plan a meaningful cultural, social, and/or academic event for the Yale-NUS community.

  • Students who are not affiliated with any particular club/organisation but have an idea for campus programming.

Registered student clubs/organisations should default to using their own budgets for events and may only seek funding if it is absolutely necessary. Consult with the Student Organisations Manager with any questions.


Students should discuss their ideas for major ideas/events with someone in the Dean of Students Office before submitting their request.
