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.


  • The deadline for Budget Semester Requests was April 14th. Check out your club’s Orgsync page for our funding decision! If you have any questions about the amount allocated to your group, please do not hesitate to contact us at

  • 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.”
