Purpose of Application:

This application is to request funding for student-led media during the 2020-2021 academic year. Student-led initiatives to create any type of media are encouraged to apply. Student Media Council bylaws state the following:

“Funding from the Student Media Council is intended to support student media that provide educational benefits to both graduate and undergraduate students. Therefore, the Council defines ‘student media’ as any media that: 1) is primarily directed to a student audience; b) contains content created by students; and/or c) is primarily staffed and organized by students. The Student Media Council will take into account the extent to which the requesting student media complies with this definition in determining whether to fund the media and the amount of funding awarded.

“All media receiving funding will be required to present to the Council during the funding year to demonstrate responsible uses of funding and allow the council to provide feedback. A representative from each media is also invited to attend Council meetings to be determined during the year.”

Please follow the link below for guidelines regarding the use of Student Media Council funding. The Council will not approve any funding use that does not follow these guidelines.


1. If you received funding in the previous year, you must email a copy of your current year budget (instructions to follow) to complete the application. A record of income and expenses for the current year may be obtained by contacting the Student Media Accountant – Kody Carbone at [email protected] (801) 581-3596.

2. After applications have been submitted, the Student Selection Committee (a sub-committee of the Student Media Council) will hold a budget meeting.

3. The Student Selection Committee will then present to the entire Council a recommendation of media to fund and the recommended amounts of funding. Upon approval by the Council, a budget is submitted to the Board of Trustees, usually in May, who approves the complete budget.

4. If your media is approved for funding the Council will contact you with a confirmation of the funding amount received. You must sign and return the funding notice and agree to a presentation to the Council in order to access your funding.

Any questions about the process may be submitted to Jacob Sorensen or Kody Carbone – (801) 581-7041.
