Grants

The purpose of our grants is to provide for the enrichment of campus life. Grants are intended to be used by clubs who need the funding to interact with their member base. The following guidelines are intended as a guide; to ensure consistent administration of grants to clubs. This is not an exhaustive list and the Clubs Committee has full discretion over all grant applications. 

The maximum grant allowed each year is as follows:
  • Registered clubs : total of $1500 of grant funding in any calendar year
  • Provisionally registered clubs : total of $800 of grant funding in any calendar year
Clubs grants are split into six different categories based on the purpose of funding. Clubs may apply for any number of grants in any category, provided the total grant allocation does not exceed the limits above.

The following are the grant categories along with their maximum allocation:
Purpose Maximum Allocation
Equipment and Resources $400
Small Event (under 200 attending) $500
Large Event (over 200 attending) $1000
Banners and Signage $300
New Club Start Up $300
Miscellaneous As Needed

A summary how the grant money will be used, covering the event details (if relevant), actual quotes from where you are purchasing (or hiring, or a web quote) and costs must be provided on application prior to the event or any purchases being made. Quotes are generally not required for items under $50.  Any printed material purchased with grant money, including business cards, banners etc, must display the Clubs logo. A proof of the material must be sent to marketing@auu.org.au for approval prior to printing.

Please note that grants will not be provided retrospectively for costs already incurred or for the purchase of alcohol.
