Subsidies

The U has a range of funding options available for clubs and societies that choose to affiliate with us. You will need to know:

 

What's Available from the U?

All clubs and societies affiliated with the U receive an annual start up budget from the U of $150 deposited into the club/society bank account after affiliation.

In addition, all U-affiliated clubs and societies are automatically allocated (and can apply for) subsidies of up to $60 per financial (student) member per annum (up to $10,000 per year of affiliation). The subsidy can be spent on events, functions, activities, stationery, equipment and merchandise. Check the table below to see what is included.

 

Guidelines

The allocation of subsidies are subject to availability and approval by the U. We don’t hand out cash, but will ask you to think about what the Club/Society Event will require in terms of equipment, decoration, venue, etc. to be a success and then we will work with you to arrange and purchase everything that is needed. That means that we can assist you and advise you to make decisions for events, activities, promotion or equipment and organise purchases with you, or that you simply give us the details of what exactly you require and we will order and pay for it with the allocated subsidy (if approved).
