Graduate and Professional Funding Committee (SGA-FIU) is looking for your support to request an increase in budget for graduate student funding.
WHEREAS, Graduate and Professional Students Committee is the major funding entity at Florida International University – MMC Campus, available for all graduate, Law and Medical students seeking funding for conference, research and professional development;
WHEREAS, 95% of the current budget of $195,000 was allocated by December 2012;
WHEREAS, The number of funding applications has doubled in 2012-2013 fiscal year compared to the previous 2011-2012 fiscal year;
WHEREAS, The number of students enrolled in graduate programs is steadily increasing each year;
WHEREAS, The current budget does not allow for any programming due to insufficient funds, while historically Graduate and Professional Students Committee successfully hosted academic and non-academic events;
I, the undersigned, call the Student Government Council – Modesto A. Maidique Campus to support the increase in Graduate and Professional Students Committee funding budget of at least $100,000 for the fiscal year 2013-2014.
