Community Initiative Funding

Description

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

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

Registered student clubs or 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 if you have any questions.

Contacts

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