AFB Hearing

All funding requests shall be heard and reviewed by the members of the Activities Funding Board before reaching a decision about funding for that program/conference. All requests MUST be turned in before a hearing is scheduled. All hearings are scheduled at the time the Funding Request Form is submitted.

One of the top three officers as officially stated by the registered student organization must attend an AFB hearing to present the funding proposal.

A maximum of twelve (12) funding requests will be heard per meeting of the AFB.

You will have a period of up to 2 minutes to tell us about your organization, then a 3 minute period to tell us about your event and why it should be funded. Be prepared to answer the following questions:

  1. How is this program open to all UH students?
  2. How will your organization market and promote the program's inclusiveness?
  3. How will the program benefit the University of Houston and your organization?
  4. If the request is for a conference, how will the conference benefit the growth and enhancement of your organization?"

After your hearing, you will be contacted with a decision within 48 hours, which will either approve your amount, approve a portion of the amount requested, or ask you to change details of your event that do not correspond with our Funding Guidelines or Funding Limits.
