Clubs & Societies Support Fund Guidelines

  • Grants are for officially recognised clubs, societies and associations.  
  • Grants can be for a range of activities, from capacity building, training, events, travel, accommodation, registration fees or equipment.
  • Up to two applications can be made per year and the funds must be spent within the same calendar year, unless approval is given.
  • 70% of your membership must be made up of current students.
  • Grant requests cannot be for the purchase of alcohol.
  • Applicants who have not received funding from other University sources will be given preference.
  • Successful applicants will be expected to acknowledge the University's support in appropriate ways (eg. wearing branded apparel during events, acknowledgment in pre- or post- event reports).
  • Successful applicants will agree to the University and AUSA's promoting the club's activities and achievements in its internal and external communications, including use of photos or video used by the applicant.
  • All grants are GST exclusive. GST is not payable on grants unless the applicant is GST registered.
  • Applications should demonstrate how the funding for events, projects or activities will contribute to a vibrant and engaging campus for University of Auckland students.
  • Applications for activities such as conferences that benefit only a few club members and take place away from Auckland or off campus are less likely to be successful than events which take place on or near campus and involve the wider student community.
  • Be clear about how the funds will be used, when the event or activity is taking place and what the benefits will be to club members, and the wider student community.
  • Ensure your application is well written and compelling, don't assume the panel will know the specifics of how wonderful your group is and what impact the funding will have.
  • The panel favors partial funding for an event or activity where the club is working with sponsors or is looking at other revenue streams. Grants should not be relied on annually.
