Funding Restrictions

The most commonly encountered restrictions are listed below.  For a full list of restrictions, please see the College Council’s Funding Restrictions.

  • Money Prizes: All money prizes or payments, including gift cards, to individuals associated with UVa must be screened by Financial Aid. Unless a prize or payment is integral to an event’s success, College Council will not fund them.
  • Honorariums: Payment for services to individuals unaffiliated with UVa (e.g. speaker fees) can be funded by College Council, although they are subject to more stringent approval requirements.
  • Alcohol: College Council funds may not be used to purchase alcoholic beverages.
  • The College Council may not fund philanthropic activities or contributions.
  • The College Council may not fund political activities.
  • We prefer not to fund travel or lodging because we often run into problems with reimbursement.

Please contact our Funding Chair at with questions.
