TGIF Funding Procedures

Spring applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through the end of the quarter. If you have a virtual project, or project that can be completed while being mindful of physical distancing guidelines, you are welcome to apply. Applications will be reviewed each week on Friday and the committee will make allocation decisions the following week.

Each applicant is required to schedule a hearing time with the TGIF Committee. A Google sheet will be sent to all applicants to sign up for a time during the week following the application deadline. The hearing provides an opportunity for applicants to further elaborate on their needs and project goals to the Committee.

Applicant Eligibility

Project proposals may be submitted by UCLA students, staff, and faculty. Individuals and organizations outside of UCLA may not submit proposals. It is highly encouraged for the projects to be student initiated and must have undergraduate student involvemen.
