Each mini-GSA is allocated a small amount of funds for events/activities/meetings which are accessible to all mini-GSA members, each academic year. All funding for an activity/event, etc. is paid initially by the mini-GSA. GSA funds will only be distributed as reimbursements.  Moreover, the GSA maintains a ledger for each mini-GSA. Unused funds for the academic year do not carry over to the next academic year. Mini-GSAs do not have meeting budgets for summer.  At the end of the year, remaining funds will be allocated to GSA reserves. Detailed information is given below.
