Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between the Dean of Students Co-sponsorship Fund and the Student Opportunity Fund?

The Dean of Students co-sponsorship Fund  provides supplemental funding to recognized Lehigh University student clubs and organizations for their events.  The Division of Student Affairs, including all the Dean of Student departments, combined their co-sponsorship funds into one place so student organizations don’t have to solicit various offices. The DOS co-sponsorship fund can provide modest grants to organizations hosting events that are open to all or part of the LU community, i.e. all LU students, faculty, staff, and/or local community members.  Preference is given to events that are planned by more than one group, and that are educational, social, service, and/or cultural.

This fund is maintained by Katherine Lavinder, Dean of Students. 

I know Dean Lavinder personally, can I email her my request for funding or do I need to fill out the appropriate funding request form?

Please fill out the Student Clubs & Organizations Funding Request Form on LINC-Lehigh Involvement Connection. This will expedite the request by providing all the necessary information. Also, by using the form the dean's assistant, Amy Grim, will be informed of your request and process it quickly.

Can I contact the other offices in Student Affairs and the Dean of Students Office for funding?

There is no need to solicit funds from the other departments individually, since they already contributed to the social improvement fund.  

I am not a member of a club or organization, can I still request funding?

This fund is specifically to support events that are planned and hosted by recognized Lehigh University clubs and organizations.  If you are interested in an individual funding option, you can see if your request fits the criteria of the student opportunity fund.

How long does it take to process the form and how will I be notified?

Request your funding well in advance of your event. Response time is typically under a week. Planning is key to the success of your event and providing as much information on the form, including uploading your budget.  Utilize the information on the Student Center Facilities webpage for event planning.

You will receive an email regarding your request.

I am a member of a graduate student club or organization. Can our group apply?

Yes, and only one person from the group needs to fill out the Student Clubs & Organizations’ Fund Request Form.
