Planning an event for Spring 2015? The application will be available shortly! Apply for funding here: SOGA Grant (March 1 - May 31)

The SOGA Board has as its primary purpose the responsible allocation of funds to student organizations serving students on the West Lafayette campus registered with the Student Activities & Organizations area of the Office of the Dean of Students to support their activities, events, travel, and services. Such activities and events should enhance campus life, allow opportunities for leadership development, promote engagement with the community, and create a forum for the exchange of information and ideas. These funds have been made available annually by the Purdue administration and the Student Activites Fee; and therefore, this initiative should benefit the members of student organizations on the West Lafayette campus and support the mission and strategic plan of Purdue University, West Lafayette.
