Application Timeline

For all grants, there is a minimum amount of time after approval which is needed in order to process your funds. Some grants require more time to process than others, so it is important that you are aware of the important deadlines related to your application. Grant requests are heard on a first come first serve basis, so plan ahead in order to meet the required timeline with the Student Involvement and Leadership Center.

Here are our most common deadlines for grant applications:

  • Supplies – General supplies require at least 4 weeks after approval for payments to be processed.
  • Events – Special events such as those held by student organizations require at least 6 weeks after approval for payments to be processed.
  • Contracts – If a contract is required for your event, such as those made for paid guest speakers, a minimum of 8 weeks is needed to process an approved application.
  • Domestic Travel – If you are applying for funds for travel within the United States, your deadline will depend on the type of grant you are seeking.
    • Individual Grants – Must be approved at least 8 weeks prior to travel.
    • Direct Grants/Joint Grants – Must be approved at least 10 weeks prior to travel.
  • International Travel – If you are applying for funds to travel beyond the United States, a minimum of 12 weeks is needed to process an approved application.
