Chartwells, the University’s food service provider, will donate $8,000 in in-kind catering allotments to be distributed over the next school year to student organizations in good standing on a first-come, first-served basis.
Grants of up to $250 will be given to qualifying student organizations. Applications must be filled out by the organization, and they will be reviewed by application committee members.
“Application committee members will consist of [the] executive director of student life, director of student engagement, student life administrative assistant, [an] SGA appointed student [and an] SAA appointed student,” Executive Director of Student Life Dr. Hollie Smith said. “Organizations must be SFA-recognized student organizations in good standing, open to all students, with no overdue invoices [and the organization must] not receive student service fees.”
The $8,000 catering grant will be split into $3,750 for the fall semester, $3,750 for the spring and $500 for the summer. Unused funds will roll over into the next semester.
“The in-kind allotments were proposed in request for a food service provider, which is a typical concession,” Contract Manager and Executive Director of Campus, Dining and Auxiliary services Carrie Charley said.
