SSAF-LogoThere are three funding rounds in 2018, however clubs should consider applying for any funds they may need early in 2019 (for orientation events, specifically) in the Trimester 3 round, to ensure that there is no delay. When applying for funding, consider item 6 in the UNE Club Regulations that relate to funding and are listed below.
The Terms of Reference for the SSAF Clubs & Societies Subcommittee can be found here.
[update - July 2018: these TOR are currently under review to reflect the cessation of the UNE Student Association]

  • To apply for funding through the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), Clubs must be a recognised Tier 1 or Tier 2 Club.
  • SSAF funding will be distributed through the Clubs and Societies committee acting as the SSAF Clubs and Societies Sub-Committee.
  • Funding will not be used for the following purposes;
    • Purchase of alcohol or other drugs
    • Endorsement of a political POV or campaign

    • Food or other consumables that only directly benefit individuals (ie. Small food items for study sessions).

    • Receipts for all associated purchases

    • Details of any SSAF allocated funds not spent and deposit information for return of unused funds.

As such they are subject to change and are not binding upon the subcommittee; in cases of notable merit the subcommittee may choose not to restrict an application to the approprate cap. Likewise they may decide to fund less than the cap stated. These caps are included here for the sole purpose of guiding expectations.
