The Undergraduate Association Finance Board (Finboard) released its allocations to student groups for the IAP/Spring joint funding period in early December.
Finboard is chaired by Danielle J. Wang ’11, and the following students also sit on it: Cynthia A. Bouldrick ’11, Sammy Chu ’10, Alexander W. Dehnert ’12, Jarrell D. Johnson ’10, Keone D. Hon ’11, Catherine A. Olsson ’12, Suniti Sundaram ’11, and Emily Zhao ’12.
Full funding information and historical information is available at http://ua.mit.edu/committees/finboard/.
The UA Finboard is the primary mechanism by which undergraduate student activities are funded. They disburse the bulk of the money from the Undergraduate Association.
