DUGs Funding

Available Funding

Each DUG is eligible for annual funding of up to $1000: $500 from a department will be matched by $500 from the Office of the Dean of the College. To apply for funds, the group must have at least one student leader, a faculty sponsor, and a list of activities to be funded for the year.

How to receive funds

A DUG student leader must submit a budget proposal listing planned events and a rationale for expenses no later than October 15, 2013 via UFUNDS. The DUG's faculty advisor must also submit an endorsement via UFUNDS that confirms that the department will provide matching funds for the DUG and includes the departmental account number. Please contact crc@brown.edu for more information.

Requirements for receiving funds

Every DUG is expected to hold at least two events each semester and no fewer than four per academic year. One of these events, taking place in April, should be a Brown Degree Days Event.  The Curricular Resource Center can assist DUGs with the planning and implementation of these events. Please consult Peggy Chang, Director of the CRC, or Darcy Pinkerton and Brian Kundinger, DUG Co-Coordinators, to plan your DUG event.
