Funding

GFAC COVID-19 Update

GFAC is still accepting applications for funding for the April 1, 2020 deadline. However, we are unable to fund attendance at conferences that have been postponed beyond the current fiscal year (past June 30, 2020); RSO events that take place during WMU's prescribed period of social distancing; or any travel for either conferences or research as long as WMU's travel restrictions are in place.  All GFAC meetings will take place remotely during this period and no RSO representatives will be required to present in-person to receive event funding. Please email gfac-info@wmich.edu with any questions. 

GSA funds are allocated to individual graduate students as grants and to RSOs as operational and event funding.  These funds are administered by the Graduate Financial Allocation Committee, which meets monthly on the dates listed below.  All funding applications must be submitted to GFAC for consideration by the submission deadline that corresponds with each monthly meeting.  Late applications will not be considered until the following month. 

Please use the menu on the left for information about the specific type of funding you're applying for and for the appropriate applications.

Note: right after submitting your application through ExperienceWMU, you will receive a notification confirming that your application has been submitted. You should expect to receive an email from the chair of the financial allocation committee regarding your application review process 10 to 7 days before the upcoming GFAC meeting. In the event that you do not receive this email, you must assume we did not receive your request. Do not hesitate to email us at gfac-info@wmich.edu inquiring about the status of your application. It is your responsibility to check if your request was received or not.
