This form is to be used by student interest groups and other student organizations recognized by the MSC to submit their funding requests.
Please try to seek at least partial funding for your events from other sources. We request that all funding requests be accompanied by at least one additional document (an email, letter, or other supporting document) either demonstrating partial funding by another organization or indicating that your organization has contacted other organizations for financial assistance, but has been denied / rejected. Simply indicating an attempt to obtain alternative funding is insufficient – an actual rejection / denial letter may be required. Optional supporting entities include medical departments, local hospitals / clinics, departments within the School of Medicine, or philanthropic contributions from current medical practitioners. Your event may not be funded if your organization does not perform due diligence in seeking funding from other appropriate sources.
This could be but is not limited to sharing data about the affected community with your volunteers, having your group leaders briefly present the mission and outcome of your project at an Office of Medical Service-Learning meeting, sending a survey out to your volunteers afterward with a free-response section, and more.
Each event will require proof of attendance in order to be acknowledged by the MSC. This will aid in our record keeping and allow us to better communicate with IUPUI for funding purposes. In addition to event attendance, SIGs should begin taking membership attendance for appropriate classification in the SIG recognition and budgeting process.
Please complete this form no later than two weeks before your event. In addition, print out a copy for your records.
