Submit an Initiative Proposal
You can submit an Initiative Proposal for a fully costed Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) project. Your project will have clear milestones and outcomes. You'll need to get a SRC endorsement to submit your proposal.
Before you start
Before you complete your Initiative Proposal, you’ll need to:
- Ensure your idea meets one or more of the 19 areas SSAF can be spent on.
- Ensure your proposal isn’t already a way that Charles Sturt University spends SSAF funds or a project under consideration.
- Provide evidence the proposed project is needed by other students and is a priority. To start with, look at the 2019 SSAF Report [PDF] 2.5MB for spending priorities by students in the SSAF survey. You can also read the full 2019 SSAF Student Survey Report.
Have a look at the appendix for proposal tips, student survey results, reporting responsibilities and processes for managing SSAF funds. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about completing your proposal.
Steps to submit an Initiative Proposal
Prepare your proposal
You'll need to identify a SSAF Project Manager. They will be responsible for managing the project and reporting on project outcomes (such as the budget). They will be supported by a Charles Sturt staff member.
Talk to a staff member
You can get advice on drafting your proposal, budgets and milestones from a Student Liaison Officer by emailing email@example.com.
They can even help with how to approach getting endorsement or answer your questions about the process to submit your proposal.
Submit your completed Initiative Proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9.00am 6th April 2020. The SSAF team will then collate all proposals submitted on-time and seek SRC endorsement in a bulk lot before submissions are forwarded to the SSAF Steering Committee for consideration. All proposals will require SRC endorsement to be successful.
