Note for GPSAFC-funded organizations and organizations new to byline funding process: New organizations are rarely approved for byline GPSAF funding. In most cases the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly Finance Commission (GPSAFC) is a more appropriate source of funding. Before commencing with the application process you should speak with the GPSA Appropriations Committee Chair if you are unsure which source is most appropriate. You may not receive byline GPSAF funding at the same time your receive funds from GPSAFC. If byline funding is approved for your organization, you will no longer receive GPSAFC funding starting in the fiscal year that byline funding becomes available, which is Fall 2014.

Note for organizations that also serve undergraduates: Unlike GPSAFC-funded organizations, GPSAF byline funded organizations may obtain byline funding simultaneously from both the GPSAF and the undergraduate Student Activity Fee (SAF). Your organization must apply separately for an undergraduate SAF byline allocation.
