Student Opportunity Funds (SOF)
Welcome to the home page of the Student Opportunity Fund, designed to provide support for events/activities both co-curricular and academic planned by and for Cal students. One of the objectives of the Student Opportunity Fund is to support programs that foster a greater sense of campus community and that are conducive to free intellectual exchange. Another goal is to encourage more interaction and educational experiences for students outside of the classroom, such as visiting speakers, forums on topics of general interest, and special campus panel discussions. Please go to the Student Opportunity Fund purpose page for a fuller description of these funds.
Requests for Student Opportunity Funds are submitted online and funded on a rolling basis for the academic year (no deadlines). Proposals must be submitted a minimum of two weeks prior to the event date. Programs are expected to adhere to a set of guidelines and restrictions; for answers to commonly asked questions, please check out the FAQ.
We are happy to be able to offer our support to your efforts. Other possible sources of funding are listed on the ASUC website.
