- Funds cannot be donated directly to charity or used for prize money.

Background of the SGAF
The goal is for SGAF funding to be used in a way that promotes the interests of the student body and ensures that the needs of Baylor students are met. Student Senate appropriates the SGAF each semester on a merit basis to Baylor-affiliated students and organizations who are able to effectively demonstrate that their event, project, educational cause, or charitable cause will benefit the Baylor campus.
Each student's tuition fee contributes to the Student Government Allocation Fund. This is approximately $90,000 per semester in addition to university funding. Student Senate has appropriating power as to whom this money is to be allocated. Individuals and/or organizations may apply for these funds. To do so, please click on the above link, fill out the form, and submit it online to Student Senate.
