  • Requests should be for one-time needs; recurring needs should be discussed with your unit leadership
  • Resource requests cannot exceed $1,500; greater needs should be discussed with your unit leadership
  • Requests are considered in the context of available resources, which vary from semester to semester
  • Recipients may be offered partial allocations rather than their full funding request 
  • Requests should articulate the equity impact to CNS and/or benefit to more than one individual student
