General Information About the VSG Co-Sponsorship Program

Co-sponsorship applications must be submitted by the 15th of the month before the event. Notification of co-sponsorship status will be sent out within ten days of the application deadline. The Programming Team reserves the right to incur late penalties or refuse requests that are turned in late. For example, if your event is scheduled for October 1-31, it must be turned in by September 15. If you have any questions or would like to submit supplemental documentation, contact Zoe Rankin, VSG Director of Programming, at zoe.t.rankin@vanderbilt.edu. Please answer each question completely.

Before you begin this form, please have readily available the Anchor Link event URL and the flyer for the event. Both are required for completion in this process.

VSG Co-Sponsorship Information

VSG maintains a budget of approximately $30,000 for supporting student organization events on campus. The Co-Sponsorship program consists of two parts, both overseen by the VSG Director of Programming:

1) General Co-Sponsorships - Eligible for up to $1000 as long as it does not exceed half of the total budget for the event

2) Co-Sponsorship of the Month - No maximum allocation as long as it does not exceed half of the total budget for the event

Notifications are sent to organization representatives once decision allocations have been reached, and if applications are incomplete or more information is needed to inform the decision making process, the VSG Director of Programming will submit questions about each proposal (if necessary) before rendering a decision to the appropriate individuals. In addition to allocation decisions, VSG may suggest alternative sources of financial support for event management.

Vanderbilt Student Government seeks to build collaborative partnerships with all student organizations, serving as a resource to help improve programming efforts, maximize the use of resources, and promote the success and hard work of our campus partners.

All questions about the VSG Co-Sponsorship Program should be directed to the VSG Director of Programming, Hitha Uday, at hitha.uday@vanderbilt.edu.
