Each semester, USG allocates funding to each of the student groups through a process called mass funding. Student groups submit their budgets, which USG first narrows down to fit within their funding guidelines (the “ideal” number). Then, they make cuts across the board to allocate within their own budget.

Allocated: 136,000 (29.57% of total; 60.27% of ideal)
Ideal: 225,649.50
