Current Standing Committees:

Description of committee:

A rotating Finance Standing Committee will judge the applications and vote for winners in a double-blind fashion. A new committee will be formed for each application cycle. Individuals can sign up to be on the committee at BGSA meetings, or can email the head of the Finance Standing Committee to be added. The head of the Finance Standing Committee will be the VP of Finance of the BGSA, unless another individual is voted into this position. Any student who is eligible to apply for a BGSA Travel Grant is eligible to be on the BGSA Standing Committee. You do not have to be an active member of the BGSA to be on the committee.

The identity of applicants will be emailed to the President before voting. The VP of Records will have full access privileges to the results of the vote, but will not be notified of the identity of the applicants.
