How does the funding work?

  • PGF funds are available immediately upon the committee funding approval. Project  funds  must  be  expended  by  May  31st  unless  special  permission is requested.
  • PGF award funds may be allocated to purchase supplies and/or materials essential to the completion of the project.
  • PGF will not reimburse students for items purchased directly. All purchases should go through the university and obey all the purchasing rules. All funds are transferred to university department/office that purchased supplies and/or materials, and are not issued directly to students.
  • Infrastructure improvement projects requesting over $20,000 and research projects requesting over $5,000 are strongly encouraged  to  apply for other grants and/or obtain funding from other Mason departments.
  • If you have any questions, email for help.
