ASCIT provides club funding to clubs with participation from currently-enrolled undergraduate students. Clubs can apply for funding at the beginning of the Fall term for general non-event needs. Registered clubs will be contacted via email regarding the initial disbursement. Throughout the year, registered clubs may submit event funding requests by emailing the event funding form to the ASCIT Treasurer. Each form of funding will require a pitch from a club representative. For more information, please see ASCIT's Club Funding Guide. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Aditi Venkatesh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Caltech Fund Phonathon partners with diverse groups on campus to raise both unrestricted funds for the Institute and immediate funds for the student group. The process is simple: your group dedicates a few days to come in, connect with alumni, and solicit them for their annual gift. The Fund will fully train you, so you don't need to have any prior fundraising experience. For more information, please visit https://fund.caltech.edu/phonathon or contact Carter Stripp at email@example.com.
GSC provides club funding to clubs with participation from currently-enrolled graduate students. Club funding can be applied for once a year, before the start of the academic year, and supports general club expenses, as well as events. If you have any questions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: The retreat fund is currently unavailable for the 2020-2021 academic year due to programming restrictions associated with COVID-19.
This fund is available for registered student groups who are in good standing with the Institute. It provides up to $1,500 per group for the purposes of a retreat, competition or conference. Please review the document regarding this fund to apply: Retreat, Club and Organizational Development Fund.
