**We encourage all student organizations to follow accessibility guidelines in order to make their events as inclusive as possible. The following website offers a succinct overview: http://www.adahospitality.org/accessible-meetings-events-conferences-guide
This fund was created to promote activities which will be of benefit to a large number of graduate students.
The interdepartmental activity fund is a relatively new funding opportunity, set up to encourage social and academic activities that foster interdisciplinary scholarship and/or relationships between students of different departments. Any group of 2 or more Departmental GSA Clubs may request up to $400 of Interdepartmental Activity Funding.
A graduate symposium is a formal meeting for the discussion of subjects of academic interest. The GSA funds the symposium so as to give graduate students the opportunity to prepare and present research papers to their peers.
This program was created to promote service to local community agencies for the betterment of humanity and to encourage graduate student organization involvement in the community.

This fund exists to support original and scholarly academic publications such as journals (of varying media) or the formal proceedings of graduate student conferences.
Scholarly publication funding applications share Fall deadlines with the other funding applications above, but all scholarly publication applications MUST be submitted in the Fall, i.e. before the November 21 deadline. All journals must be printed by June 30, 2018.
Programming Grants are offered twice per year, once in the Fall semester and once in the Spring semester. The primary function of the Programming Grant is to fund programs that further the quality of student life, and enrich the educational, cultural and social experiences at the University at Buffalo. In light of these goals, organizations that receive awards are to use them to expand existing programs or to help launch new projects.
