Student Group Administrative Fund


All student groups officially recognized by the BPSH Student Assembly are granted a yearly administrative allowance of $150 for supplies and materials needed for the groups' operations. This amount refreshes at the end of the academic year (September 1 through June 1) and does not roll over across academic years.

These funds CAN be used to support events open to the entire BSPH student body as well as "closed" events (for example, purchasing food for a meeting or training, a token of appreciation for an end-of-year-celebration open to group members only).

Most expenses are allowable including: food/beverages, paper supplies, promotional materials, parking vouchers, printing, and software. Food and office supply orders will placed via the BSPH Student Assembly Foodify account and BSPH Office of Student Affairs Amazon account. Student Assembly also has materials and resources that student groups can freely use to support their activities including:

  • Color printer
  • Directional signage
  • Printer paper, cardstock, colored paper
  • Tableware, cups, plates, utensils, etc
  • iPads
  • Speakers and Projectors
  • Miscellaneous office supplies

If you have questions about accessing these materials or making purchases with your student group's allowance, please contact the VP of Student Groups at and Treasurer at


  • Student group must be officially recognized by BSPH Student Assembly

  • Scholarships, in-kind donations, and monetary donations are not allowable expenses under the student group supplies fund.
