The Student Government Association (SGA) believes student organizations are major contributors to the healthy presence of students on campus. The purpose of the co-sponsorship process on the Atlanta campus is to allow SGA to support chartered student organizations through funding of up to $1,000 for events that promote cultural awareness, educational development and community interaction for the students of Georgia State University. Events must be co-sponsored by at least two Atlanta campus chartered student organizations (not including SGA) to be eligible for funding.
SGA Co-sponsorship Forms will be available for Fall 2019 programs on June 17, 2019 for events occurring after August 5, 2019. Chartered student organizations must obtain their advisor’s approval before requests can be processed.
To allow adequate time for the SGA Student Engagement Committee review, as well as adequate promotion of the event, all applications for events in Fall 2018 must be submitted at least four weeks prior to the event date in order to be considered. Late submissions and emailed or faxed requests will not be considered.
