The Greek Funding Advisory Board is comprised of representatives from the four Councils and is responsible for advising the Assistant Dean for Sorority and Fraternity Life on the allocation of funds to recognized sororities and fraternities at Indiana University. Sororities and fraternities recognized by the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life can apply for funding to assist with their programming, events, activities, and professional development opportunities for their members. The request must align with the values and mission of the organization and the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life. All organizations that receive funding are expected to be fiscally responsible, utilizing the funds solely for the purpose for which they were allocated.
