Grants from this fund are awarded by the FSA board of directors to faculty, staff and students who propose public programs that will promote and cultivate educational and extracurricular activities on the Buffalo State campus. Grant applications are accepted in the spring and fall; funding is awarded for the following calendar year (ex. spring, summer and fall semester; spring 2022-fall 2022).

Except in rare circumstances, grants will be awarded according to the following guidelines:
In the past programs were required to be conducted on the Buffalo State campus only--this restriction has been removed due to COVID-19. Programs are allowed to take place digitally and in remote settings.
Grant funds awarded in this cycle must be expended before December 31, 2023.
Programs must be open to all members of the campus community free of charge—if there is a revenue generated by the event in the form of admission or other charges, that amount will be deducted from the awarded FSA grant disbursement.
Programs must be on a non-continuous basis and cannot be a regular or annual event exceeding the reasonable limits set by the FSA board.
Applications including civic and community engagement efforts are encouraged.
No more than 1/3 of the FSA portion supporting the program’s total budget may be expended for food or beverage.
A program flyer/promotional material and attendance estimate must be provided to the FSA prior to processing the final disbursement.
Grant funds cannot be used for bulk gift cards, coupons, giveaways, incentive gifts, or physical materials not directly related to the program participation.
Invoices/billing receipts must be provided to the FSA prior to any grant disbursement.
Please submit any speaker biographies/resumes with the application packet. Any additional attachments can be emailed to email@example.com after completing the online application.
Average grant amounts awarded: $1000-3000. Higher amounts will be considered based on program merits.
