The deadline for 2018-2019 applications is December 31, 2018. Funds will be allocated shortly thereafter. Journals will have use of the funds until July 2020, when the allocation will expire and funds will be returned to the general GSA fund for redistribution.
All applicants must submit a completed form, but journals should feel free to offer supplements to the form if they feel that the document does not adequately capture their situation. The application is also meant to function as a budget and planning worksheet to help publications determine their needs and convey those to GSA in an orderly way since requests for funding usually exceed resources by 40% .

The application for 2018-2019 is now available for download. No substantive changes have been made from the previous year’s application.

Student Government Accounting
All funding provided to GSA Publications-supported journals must be accessed via requisitions requiring the signature of a registered signatory of the journal student group (see below), the signature of the Director of Publications, and the signature of one or two elected officers in order to be processed. All requisitions must be accompanied by complete documentation. Forms are available in the GSA Media Studio (138 Kerckhoff) and in the main GSA office (316 Kerckhoff). For more information on SGA procedures, visit: http://gsa.asucla.ucla.edu/briefing-room/sga .
Note that Student Government Accounting provides weekly financial reports, but due to the extended audit period in the Fall quarter, these accounts may not reflect actual current balances. Journals are expected to keep track of their own expenditures.
