Chapter Funding Requirements


EMBS funding is available only to EMBS Chapters, EMBS Student Branch Chapters and EMBS Student Clubs. Matching funds of up to $500 for clubs and up to $1000 for chapters are available to those Chapters/Clubs interested in hosting an event. The matching ratio is 2:1, with EMBS providing up to twice the amount raised from some other source. A limited amount of funding is available, so please get your requests in early.

If EMBS funding is sought to support Chapter or Section for a particular meeting, matching funds should be requested in advance. This way, the EMBS Executive Office is aware of the event, they can confirm the funds are available and can promote it accordingly. The following procedure should occur:

The hosting chapter or section should first write to the EMBS Executive Office with a request for funding, when submitting request, please provide the following information:

  • Description of the activity for which funding is required
  • Statement of objectives
  • A Program detailing the event
  • A letter with supporting documents indicating the amount of money raised from other sources
  • Fill out the Chapter Activity Funding Request Form
