The Finance Committee organizes the annual GPSA budget and works with the GPSA President, Chief of Staff, and officers to keep a balanced budget. The committee supervises the allocation of GPSA funds to departmental and non-departmental graduate and professional student organizations.
The GPSA offers three kinds of funding for student organizations. For information about these funding sources, see this page. Funding for individual graduate students is handled by the GPSA Grants committee.
During the semester, the most-commonly sought funding source is an appropriations request. This page provides information for making such a request.


  • Receive and organize Budget and Appropriation Requests
  • Make Recommendations to Council
