Student Activities Council (STAC)

The Northern Arizona University STudent Activities Council (STAC) provides financial support for events that enhance and enrich students’ lives on the Mountain Campus. STAC has two areas of focus: large-scale entertainment events ($5,000 and over) and small scale events ($500-$4,999). Any department or registered student organization can seek funding through STAC. Student organizations seeking funding of less than $500 should go through the Associated Students of Northern Arizona University (ASNAU) or Graduate Student Government.  The maximum allocation is $20,000.

Thank you for your interest in STAC funding. We do not have any more funds available for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Applications for the 2016-2017 academic year will be available at the beginning of August 2016. The STAC Committee will formally review applications for the 2016-2017 academic year at the beginning of September 2016. Please check back for updates.
