PB Funds

Fall 2018 PB Fund Requests

If your graduate student organization receives Pro-Rated Benefits (PB) Funds from GPSA as a source of funding for your organization, please see below.

C. In order to receive pro-rated benefits, each Registered Departmental Student Association must apply through SGAO each semester.

1. PB Funds must be requested by the eighth Friday of the Fall and Spring semesters respectively. PB Funds not requested within the semester are automatically reverted to the GPSA General Fund.


This means you MUST submit your PB Funds request to SGAO no later than Friday, October 12, 2018 for the Fall 2018 distribution.




  1. Charter your organization with the Student Activities Center, Room 1018, in the Student Union Building. Your RDSA’s charter must be renewed each year. Generally, organizations do this at the beginning of fall semester. Only officers listed on an RDSA charter can request PB funds. Make sure to keep your department up to date! Contact the SAC (277-4706) for questions regarding your RDSA’s charter.
  2. Attend at least 1 SGAO PB Fund workshop during August/September (see schedule here). If there are no longer PB Fund workshops offered, you must schedule and attend a meeting with the SGAO Accountant (sgao@unm.edu) or the GPSA Executive Finance Committee Chair (gpsafin@unm.edu).
  3. Email the following information to sgao@unm.edu to submit your application. Other comments may be included at your discretion.
  • Organization name,
  • SINGLE academic department,
  • Contact information of an officer in the organization,
  • SGAO Account Number,
  • The estimated number of students enrolled in your department
  1. Your request will be checked against the Official Enrollment Report from the Registrar’s Office and then processed.
