Five more student organizations received funding from the Student Government Association Tuesday. The Student Senate adjourned last week after funding 11 student groups a combined total of nearly $22,000.

They began Tuesday’s meeting with $7,960 remaining in the fund and 10 additional student groups requesting funds.

The Senate was able to give money to five of the organizations before their funds ran out. Senators were not able to hear the last five groups.

Any official student group may apply for SGA funding and money is distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Organizations must submit an itemized budget and use SGA allotments for the exact purpose for which the money is given.

The Senate’s Appropriations Committee requires receipts for all use of organizational funding and verifies the organizations spending.

The Senate dispensed funding for student organizations as follows:

*Campus Crusade for Christ was allotted $4,375 for retreat fees, conference registration fees and New Student Days activities.

*Harvest was allotted $1,350 to send 30 students to a conference in October.

*The hockey team was allotted $1,900 to pay ice expenses for four games.

*The Public Relations Student Society of America was allotted $239 for registration costs for one person to attend a national conference.

*The Older Wiser Learners was allotted $90 for fund-raising events and organization brochures.
