The SBA encourages student groups to spend their budgets on quality programming. To that end, there are mechanisms in place to provide additional funds to groups that propose additional events, which were not funded through the central budgeting process
Family grants are designed to encourage coordination among the various groups. Any time two or more groups jointly sponsor an event, they may solicit additional funding from the SBA. Each group must contribute at least 20% of the event's costs, or if several groups are involved, the combined contribution must be at least 75%.
The Incentive Fund
The incentive fund is a new fund designed to encourage student organizations to sponsor events throughout the year that they did not anticipate in their proposed budget. This fund can also be used to fund any new groups formed throughout the year.
The Prominence Fund
The Prominence Fund is distributed through NYU School of Law, and not the SBA. Students should contact Paul O'Grady, Acting Assistant Dean for Student Affairs for additional information.
The Symposium Committee
Organizations wishing to host a symposium at the Law School should contact the Symposium Committee, which also provides non-SBA money to student groups.
