What does Allocations do?

The mission of the Allocations committee is to allocate funding appropriately to 250+ Senate-recognized clubs and Senate-sponsored organizations, encourage and educate our student organizations on financial management, and support a vibrant student life at Lehigh. The Allocations Committee meets weekly and is responsible for processing all budget requests by student organization, establishing a guideline for allocations and allocating funds to student organizations.

The Allocations Committee is chaired by Kaithlyn Hendricks. Reach out at

Learn more about the guidelines for requesting club funding

The Allocations Committee looks at every funding request through the lens of respect, accessibility, and equity. The Allocations Committee does not prioritize one club over another; the only priority a club may have is the order in which funding requests are submitted. Funding requests should be submitted a minimum of 14 days in advance in roder to give the Allocations Committee time to review the request and acquire more information if needed. Within funding requests, it is important to provide a budget of all costs, documents, and relevant links that support the budget. When clubs are requesting money for events, it's important and required for clubs to submit an event planning form as well--this form's approval or denial will affect the Allocations Committee's ability to fund said event. If your club is unsure about an event that they are planning or would like more insight on Allocations, please refer to our guidelines below, or email to schedule a meeting time.

Allocations Rules and Guidelines for Student Clubs & Organizations - Fall 2023 & Spring 2024

Lehigh Senate does not provide reimbursements of any kind unless there are extenuating circumstances. All funding requests are expected to be submitted two weeks before the planned date of purchase/event occurence--this is to give the Allocations Committee time to handle your request due to the high volume of requests submitted to us. The final day to submit a funding request in the Spring 2024 semester is April 20th at 11:59pm.
