Graduate and Professional Student Assembly Finance Commission



What is the GPSAFC?  And more importantly, how can I get money?

We are the funding arm of the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GPSA).  If you are a graduate or professional student, you may have noticed that there is an activity fee.  A different committee, the Appropriations Committee (AC), helps decide the fee and whether to give money directly to organizations such as the Cornell Cinema. We at the Finance Commission (FC) handle budget requests from student-run organizations and manage funding tiers.  (When you submit a budget through CampusGroups, there are actual humans- us- looking at it!)  Because of this student-run system, your activity fee gets used for fun, inclusive events.  For quick tips on how to get money from the GPSAFC please see our quick-start guide, and for more detailed information check out our guidelines.
