2019 Grant Application Form for MUSA-affiliated Student Groups
CSGC (or MUSA) Grants are only available to MUSA-affiliated clubs to cover major costs associated with the core business of the club.

A MUSA Grant application is made to the MUSA Clubs & Events Coordinator (CEC), but decided by a committee comprising of three MUSA staff/executive members and 3 Massey staff members.
The CEC prepares the clubs submission and acts as a conduit both before and after the committee meeting to clarify the submission details and explain decisions.

1. There are four CSGC grant rounds per year.
2. Each affiliated club may only apply for three out of the four annual grant rounds.
3. In each funding round, your group may apply for one expense or (set of) item(s) only.
4. Check which category of funding you apply for; different categories carry different percentages of pay-out.
5. Check that your tier (the number of full student members in your club) is accurate, because it too, influences the
amount of pay-out available to your club.
6. Funding is only granted for FUTURE events and purchases.
7. Only students will be funded; staff and non-students must cover their own costs. Travel funds are also not available to
cover the costs of guest speakers/teachers.
8. Grant money will only be transferred to your group's bank account AFTER you have produced receipts of spending AS
WELL AS a brief report (with photos, if possible).
9. Grants must be claimed within three months unless discussed with the CEC.
10. Please make an appointment with the MUSA CEC to discuss details, particularly if you are unsure what you can apply

Grant deadlines for 2019 are: 29 March, 15 May, 25 July and 18 September. Workshops to help you prepare for successful grant applications run 25 March and 29 May, both 6-7 pm in the MUSA Lounge.
