Student Organization Fundraising Graphic

Pepsi Funding

As part of the agreement between the University of Kansas and Pepsi, two separate programs are available for University activities. First, the Program Funding is designated each year for financial support of University programs. Second, Pepsi  Product Requests are available as a form of support for University programs.  Proposals for program funding are welcomed from all University units, primarily non-academic units; and registered student organizations. Program funding application material and more information are available at Program Funding.

Applications for product requests are also welcomed from all University units, primarily non-academic units; and registered student organizations. Pepsi product request application materials are available at Product Requests.
After you have reviewed the applicable pages, if you have additional questions, please contact the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs at 785-864-4060.

Should I make a request for product or program funding?

I would like Pepsi products to be provided at my program/event

Program Funding : I would like money to help support or pay for part of my program/event


Student Senate Funding

Student Senate has three primary funding sources: Block, Line-item, and the Unallocated account. The budget code is in Article VIII of SSRR. The Block and Line-item process happens in the spring semester around the same time as Fee Review; and week-to-week funding requests come from Unallocated.

Guidlines for funding:

  • To qualify for funding, a student group must:
    • Be open to all KU students
    • Be registered with the Student Involvement & Leadership Center (SILC)
    • Have no academic standards 
    • Have no membership dues
  • Any group requesting a service fee (honorarium, DJ, etc.) must turn in a contractual services form and a W9 before the legislation can be seen
  • For special events, refer to the “half-over-a-thousand” rule: Senate can fund up to the first $1,000 of the cost and 50% of the remaining total
  • Groups seeking more than general funding ($100) should send representatives to help answer questions in committees and full senate
  • Groups should seek funding from other sources, such as Coke, the Multicultural Education Fund, and department support
  • Funds will be available for groups 10 days after approval, at the earliest, therefore groups should seek event funding earlier rather than later
