What are RHAC Grants?

RHAC grants are amounts of money given to on-campus organizations and programs looking to improve residence life on campus by focusing on any of RHAC’s five pillars:

1. Creating and Developing Community

2. Student Advocacy

4. Student Development and Wellness

3. Diversity

5. Recognition and Leadership

Who can apply?

Any Columbus campus housing organization can apply. Housing organizations consist of Community Advisors, Resident Managers, Housing Coordinators, Hall Directors, Resident Advisors, Hall Councils, and any Involved Living Organizations.

For a hall to request a grant, they must have an active RHAC Senate member. To be considered active, a senator must attend all meetings. Senators can have at most two unexcused absences. If a senator must miss a meeting, they may send another member of their Hall Council to attend the meeting in their place.

How much can I apply for?

You can apply for up to $1,500 per program. The Finance Committee reserves the right to adjust the amount of the approved grant as they see fit. If your grant is approved, you will receive funding in the form of reimbursement after you have paid for the event and all necessary supplies.

If the event is being held in conjunction with multiple organizations, only one application should be submitted for said program. To promote collaboration amongst Hall Councils, if you are a Hall Council submitting a grant for an event with another Hall Council, each participating hall council may submit a grant request. 

How does the process work?

  1. Submit your grant application at any time. The Finance Committee will review the grants over the weekend after each of the following deadlines:
  • Mon, Jan 20, 2020 at 9am
  • Mon, Feb 3, 2020 at 9am

  • Mon, Mar 30, 2020 at 9am
  • Mon, Apr 13, 2020 at 9am

     2. You will receive notice of your grant’s approval or denial on Wednesday following each grant deadline     

NOTE: Failure to submit the form and all receipts within this period will result in no reimbursement.

Who should you contact if you have any questions?

You should contact our Director of Finance, Nathan Rush, at rush.294@osu.edu with any comments, questions, or suggestions about our funding process. He is also available to meet with you during his office hours on TBD in the RHAC Office in the Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership on the second floor of the Ohio Union.
