The VPMA Office has created a form for SA organizations to request sponsorship for events they are holding in the spring. The form can be completed below, with all submissions due by Wednesday, January 15th.

Prior to starting the form, please be prepared to answer questions about the goal of the event, provide the logistics of the events, other pending sponsorships, and a budget breakdown of the event. I will be reviewing all applications with my programming director and financial director to decide which events will be sponsored and will contact your organization’s representative when a decision has been made. If your application is approved, an additional interview with myself about the event may be needed before sponsorship is officially granted.
