SOFA Funding Request Forms
Funding request forms will be submitted through UIS Connection and will be due at 5:00pm (CST) on the Fridays listed below.
Although the SOFA board will meet to review the requests, student organizations will not be required to attend and/or to present their requests in person to the board.
Instead, funding decisions will be made by the committee using UIS Connection and will be based upon the information submitted through the UIS Connection form. Please fill out the SOFA request form completely so that SOFA is not delayed in making their decisions regarding the submitted requests.
