Academic Funding & Event Funding
What is the current state of all things related to GSC Funding? Read the 2006-07 Treasurer's Final Report and find out!
Funding is an important issue for graduate students and student groups alike. The GSC is involved in funding issues in a number of ways:
- With the exception of the Travel Fund Grant program, the GSC does not provide funding for personal academic expenses. Students looking for such funding may wish to consult the Graduate Students Office financial aid overview and official policies. The GSC does, however, advocate for appropriate stipend increases through its Cost of Living initiative.
- Student groups can find information on this site regarding the GSC's Funding Board, which allocates approximately $100,000 per year in event and capital funding to graduate student groups at MIT. This is the largest distribution of money to graduate student groups anywhere at the Institute.
- GSC representatives can find information regarding the per-semester funding given to them to carry out activities for the groups they represent.
- Graduate students taking part in competitions around the nation can find information on how to apply for the GSC Athletics/Performance Activities Grant to help them cover the costs of travel to these competitions.
