The Graduate Students of the Computer Science department have a small amount of money that can used for graduate student activities. Note that this money is separate from the funds used for department-wide social activities such as the Halloween party. If you have an idea for how this nest egg can be spent, you must propose a use to the FGL and, if accepted, collect votes to pass it. A proposal must include:
- Motivation for this proposal (How does it benefit the CS grad community).
- What the money will be spent on.
- The amount of money to be spent.
- If something is to be purchased, where it will be stored and used and who will be responsible for it, or if an event is being funded, when and where it will take place.
Once a proposal is accepted, it will be posted online, announced to the graduate students, and able to be voted upon for a period of 10 business days. It is the proposer's responsibility to collect votes both for and against the proposal (this is your opportunity to convince people to vote for it). All currently enrolled graduate students must vote either FOR the proposal, AGAINST the proposal, or ABSTAIN from voting. To pass, 50%+1 of all non-abstentions must be FOR the proposal.
There are no proposals at this time.
