About Us

The ASSU Undergraduate Senate, via the Appropriation Committee, oversees the funding of numerous student groups on Stanford’s campus. While the Undergraduate Senate primarily funds Undergraduate VSOs, Graduate VSOs may apply if they can demonstrate a clear benefit to the Undergraduate Community.

Our team is dedicated to the values of transparency and accountability and we are committed to proactively sharing as much of our work as possible. As such, the Executive team maintains a publicly accessible google drive where members of our community can garner detailed insights into the work that we do. Our drive contains information about reports, proposals, surveys, and other data related to the initiatives we’ve undertaken. It also contains a directory of the newsletters sent to the Stanford student body. You may access the Executive Team’s public drive by using this link. You may access archives of previous newsletters sent to the student body by using this link. In addition to our google drive, the ASSU maintains a publicly accessible calendar where you may find all meetings that are open to the student body. You may access the calendar here.

How To Apply

  1. Create and submit your application on GrantEd; make sure your application adheres to our funding policies. You can find our funding policies here.
  2. Before all deadlines, VSO Financial Officers must attend a funding office hour with a Senator for a preliminary evaluation of their application. Only funding applications that have been evaluated during an ASSU Funding Office Hour will be considered.
    ** Please note: ASSU Funding Office Hours are distinct from CapGroup Office Hours and OSE Office Hours. **
  3. If the Committee requires more information, it will email the FO in question for the information.
  4. After the Committee makes its recommendations, the Senate will approve or reject the funding application. If approved, funds should be posted within 5 business days.
