UC Irvine has several funding opportunities for Registered Campus Organizations (RCOs).
ASUCI Student Programming Funding Board (SPFB)
The Student Programming Funding Board (SPFB) is one of the two branches a part of ASUCI funding board under the Office of the President. SPFB is comprised of funds from student fees, therefore, all events that SPFB funds must be open to the general public and target all UCI undergraduate students. SPFB does not fully fund charity events - in the case of charity events, loans may be issued. This funding board aims to maintain objectivity by operating fully on a rubric scale system and does not provide any arbitrary funds. Information: email SPFB@asuci.uci.edu.
