Talon Grant Program Begins Selection Process

As we gear up and get ready for paper writing and test taking I want to remind everyone about a way that you can affect change on campus.

No, I’m not talking about running for office (although, you should seriously consider doing that too).

I am talking about the SGA Talon Grant Program. Do you have an idea for a program or a purchase that would better the campus community? Are you looking for a way to fund it?

The Talon Grant Program was created last year as a way for any full time, degree seeking student to apply for funding from the SGA to support a campus initiative that they would like to see carried out.

This program gives the student body a way to avoid the ‘red tape’ of going through an SGA member, creating a bill, and so on.

In the next few days the Talon Grant application will be made available on the SGA website and in the Club Room and Office of Student Activities. The application is short and relatively easy.
After completing it, the application will direct you submit the proposal to either the SGA Treasurer or the SGA Director of Programming.

From here the SGA Finance Board or the SGA Programs Board will review your application for feasibility and make a recommendation as to whether it should pass. Finally, your proposal will be moved on to the SGA Senate for approval.

It seems as though this year has flown by and that the end of the year is quickly approaching.

In these next few weeks I hope to see some Talon Grant proposals at the Senate meetings on Tuesday nights!

Enjoy the warmer spring weather!
