Late Night Program Grant Funding Checklist


  • There are no application deadlines instead applications must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to your event to give the committee enough time to review your submission.
  • Organizations may receive (but are not guaranteed) a maximum of $2,500 per fiscal year. Receiving funding one year does not guarantee your group will receive funding (or the same amount of funding) the following year.

1. Complete Before Submitting Application:

  • Two representatives from your organization need to attend our Alcohol Harm Reduction Training lead by a Student Involvement Ambassador. Email to schedule a time for a virtual training.
  • Be sure your organization is currently registered with your organization’s specific governing body or UI Department (USG or GPSG, ARH, PHC, IFC, NPHC, MGC, or UI Department) at the time of the applications and at the time of the event or program.
  • Check to see if your event meets all the requirements to be eligible for Late-Night Grant Funding, please refer to the ‘Event Requirements’ section at the bottom of the page.

2. Complete Before Your Event:

  • Create a budget in an excel file format (a budget will be needed for your application). Budgets should include ALL projected income and expenses AND indicate what specific items/budget lines are requested from Campus Events Grant Funding. Sample acceptable budgets are listed below:

*Ineligible funding expenses include travel, conferences, regular organization meetings, hotels, and purchasing equipment (rental of equipment is allowed)

  • Fill out and submit the Late-Night Grant Funding Application Form on Engage (application submission needs to at least 2 weeks prior to your event for the committee to review).

3. Complete After Your Event:

  • Fill out and submit the Late-Night Grant Funding Evaluation Report on Engage (the post-event Evaluation Report needs to be submitted within 2 weeks following after your event). This evaluation must be completed and submitted online before payment will be transferred to your organization account.
