Student Organization Resources

Funding

Registered student organizations do not automatically receive funding once they are registered. Funding is only available through the Student Government Association funding request process. Your organization can apply for a grant for General Funding, Club Sports, Multicultural Inclusion, and Service.  For more details on the process, please visit www.uksga.org.

Graphic Design Services

All registered student organizations can take advantage of a Graphic Design Request service once per academic year.  We encourage you to sign up 3-4 weeks before your deadline to ensure that our Graphic Designer will have enough time to complete the project.  Due to the large number of requests, it usually takes our graphic designer 1-2 weeks to contact your organization. This service is only offered during the fall & spring semesters.

The Graphic Design Request form can be found here.

Check out the Licensee List for approved UK vendors who will make sure your graphics abide by UK graphic standards!



Registered Student Organization Copy Codes

Student Organizations and Activities is pleased to announce that we are now providing copy codes to registered student organizations.  The copier for this use is located in the Student Organization Workspace in room A252 in the Center for Student Involvement, on the second floor of the Gatton Student Center.  This copy code allows each registered student organization to make 200 black and white copies and 100 color copies each school year.  These codes are for making copies only.  We do not have a computer associated with this machine
therefore it is unable to print.  A list of printer locations on campus is available here.    

For more information or access to your organization's code, e-mail studentorgs@uky.edu
