Welcome to the Arizona State University, Undergraduate Student Government Tempe (USGT) Event Funding page!


The USGT Appropriations Committee awards student organizations on the ASU Tempe campus Event Funding to foster a more engaging environment on campus and provide safe, fun, enriching activities for the student body. Event Funding is provided on a rolling basis throughout the entire year but applications must be submitted well in advance of the event date. This demonstrates that events have been well thought out and planned. If your student organization has not taken the required Appropriations Training or created a SunDevilSync profile, please refer to the USG Funding webpage.


To review what items are typically funded and which are prohibited, please review the Spending Guidelines webpage.


Find additional items funded for events here.



Your event must be open to all ASU students to receive funding. See here for tips on Planning Inclusive Events.


Your event must have an event page on SunDevilSync. See here for Application Tips and USG Partnerships.

Spring 2022 Event Funding Budget Request in SunDevilSync

  • Opens:     TBD in Fall 2021

  • Closes:     TBD in Fall 2021


Very Important: How much you are requesting for an event determines how early your student organization must submit a budget request. 


Submit a budget request in SunDevilSync within the above deadlines. If requesting to pay a speaker, submit your budget request and purchase request at the same time. See the below guide for help.

Only the top three officers of an organization should submit a budget request since they should’ve taken the required Appropriations Training course. Submissions from advisors or general members will not be considered.



Your student organization’s event budget request will be reviewed within three weeks of submission. If further clarification is needed on your budget request, a comment will be left on your budget request and an automatic email will be sent to the budget requestor – the individual who submitted the budget. However, we highly recommend that you also regularly check SunDevilSync to avoid missing a notification. 


The turnaround time is conditional on your student organization being responsive to our questions and requests for clarification.


Funds will be available for use once the Appropriations Committee approves the budget internally. 


Refer to the Spending Guidelines webpage for information on how to spend your awarded funds.
