Fort Hays State University's Student Government Association (SGA) represents the interests of students to the administrators of FHSU, the Kansas Legislature, and the Kansas Board of Regents. SGA is comprised of three independent branches: the Student Senate, the Student/Faculty Court, and the Executive Staff. Our Senate has four regular standing committees focusing on various matters in support of student issues, including the Appropriations Committee, Legislative and Political Action Committee, Senate Affairs Committee, and the Student Affairs Committee. Other committees (that do not meet year-round) include the Allocations Committee and the Educational Opportunity Fund Committee.
SGA meetings are held every Thursday night at 7:00PM in the Memorial Union's Black and Gold Room. All students are welcome to attend and speak during the meeting's Open Forum. Students also have numerous opportunities to participate in SGA by serving on University Standing Committees, applying for a seat as a Student Senator, being appointed on the Student/Faculty Court, or serving on the Executive Staff.
A Request Form, 4-digit and 6-digit budgets in the SGA budget format, and a complete and updated membership list. Supplemental materials may be included with the application. Please contact the SGA Office if you, or your organization, has any questions regarding the Allocations process. Appointments can be made to review and assist organizations with budgets.
Download the SGA Allocations Documents for the Allocations Request Form, a 4-digit budget, and a 6-digit budget here.
All student organizations requesting Allocations money must have a student representative present at the second reading for the duration of the meeting. Failure to have a representative present at any time during the meeting will result in an irreversible zero-funding of the student organization.
