at The Ohio State University

For Student Organizations


Several different sources of funding exist for professional student organizations. The information provided addresses funding options both from the University and IPC, but is not an exhaustive list.



Program Funding From The Council on Student Affairs

Registered student organizations can apply for up to $3,000 (or $4,500, depending on established status) in programming funds. Programming funds are to be used to host a program or event on-campus that is open for any Ohio State student to attend. 

Requests must be submitted by the in the application period designated based on when the event will occur.  The  Student Organization Funding Website  outlines fundable and non-fundable expenses for programming funds as well as the linked guidelines document. Funds are issued on a reimbursement basis upon successful completion of an audit within 30 days of the originally scheduled program date (see below). 

Please note: While many of the professional colleges operate on a different calendar from the rest of the university, the various quarter deadlines still apply.



Organizational Funding from the Inter-Professional Council

All professional students in the IPC colleges and professional student organizations are invited to apply for limited funding for events and programs that benefit students of one or more of the six professional colleges. 


IPC provides funding to student organizations through an internal funding process.


To begin the process, fill out this form to tell us about your organization and the event you are hosting.

  1. Upon submission of this form a copy of your responses will be emailed back to the email provided. 
  2. Contact one of your college's IPC Senators and work with them to format these responses into the Funding Resolution Template (a full list can be found under the "Representatives" tab).
  3. The completed IPC Funding Resolution will be submitted to IPC's EVP/CFO for evaluation and grading by the Allocations Committee. At the next senate meeting the resolution will be presented and voted on.  
  4. Your organization may be invited to give a presentation about your event to the senate prior to the vote. 
  5. Please keep in mind that funding is RETROACTIVE. If IPC votes to approve funding for your event there will be a receipt submission process through the university to get reimbursed after the event has taken place. 


The Senator or student organization will help you write a funding bill to be presented to the full Council at our next general body meeting. The student organization seeking funding may be asked to organize a brief presentation to explain the program and take questions from senators at this meeting.


The general body will then debate the merits of the bill based upon, but not limited to:


·      The merit and benefit of the program to the professional schools

·      Level of collaboration among the schools to organize and put on the program

·      The inclusiveness of the program for all professional students


Please note that organizational funding from IPC is limited and should not be sought as the only source of funding for a program. Student Organizations can also apply for funding through CSA.
