The Student Activity Association (SAA) would like to make you aware of a funding opportunity for which your department or students in your department may have an interest. In its eighth year, we are proud to offer the Departmental Program Sponsorship.
As part of its mission to further educational and service opportunities for ESU students, SAA has established a fund to help support University departments, classes and organizations to plan programs and present activities of student interest. These sponsorships will allow ESU students to have co-curricular experiences that would compliment their classroom learning and/or will further the mission of a department. The Departmental Program Sponsorship program is not intended to support attendance at conferences/ workshops (other programs are available for that purpose) or the purchase of equipment but to attend programs or hear speakers that will contribute to the educational mission of the University. The sponsorship is intended to help support, but not solely fund the initiative. It is expected that other sources of funding will be utilized (i.e. other departments, ticket sales, etc.) in support of the program. Applications and more detailed information are available in the SAA Office, room 223 of the University Center, and should be submitted at least four weeks in advance of the proposed program.
If you have any questions about the Departmental Program Sponsorship program, please feel free to contact John Robinson, Ed. D. in the SAA Office or by calling 422-3607.
