Allocations Board

The Allocations Board is an organization on BU’s campus tasked with distributing a portion of the Community Student Fee (CSF) to on- and off-campus events held by undergraduate student organizations.  The AB is composed entirely of undergraduates from across BU’s schools, residence halls, and student groups.  Though each member attends every Monday night meeting and staffs the office, members receive no compensation other than the joy of subsidizing and encouraging great events.

We hope this site serves both as a resource to groups requesting funding and for students curious about how their CSF is distributed, and how they can become involved in the process.

Please contact us at or by visiting one of the members at their Office Hours with any questions or concerns.


  • Funding decisions for the spring semester have been released. Check your student group’s Orgsync page for our decision. If you have any questions, feel free to stop by one of our member’s office hours or email either your adviser or AB directly at
  • Welcome Back! AB will be holding weekly meetings at 8 p.m. in CAS 132 for the spring semester. Hope to see you there! 
  • Our Handbook was recently updated in August. If your student group has any questions about what AB does and does not fund, check out our Handbook here: AB Handbook
  • Special Initiatives: If your student group just found out about an event, you may be eligible for our Special Initiative program too. You can find more information about this in the funding tab or in our handbook.

  • Over the past year, AB has undergone many changes. One of the biggest changes is that we have switched to a semesterly funding policy where we allocate all of the funds for the next semester at our semester hearings which occur at the end of the fall semester for spring and at the end of the spring semester for the following fall semester. Below you will find videos detailing how to submit a successful semester budget request.
  • FOOD POLICY: “The AB will consider funding food provided it is a unique AND educational component relevant to the event. Funding will be further considered if the food supplements cultural and/or religious aspects of the group’s mission and the event. The AB may also fund with the discretion of expected attendance, creativity and other regular funding criteria.”
