The Arizona Board of Regents approved the Freshman Fee in 2010. The Freshman Fee Board allocates approximately $120,000 each year to departments within the University of Arizona.
The Freshman Fee is designed to fund programs and projects targeting freshmen interests and aligning with the Office of the Provost's goal of creating an exceptional student experience at UA. Previously funded projects include Bear Down Camp, Family Weekend, SafeCats and Finding Community Welcome. Funded programs and projects target aspects of the freshman experience and are designed to have a positive impact on students.
UA students help determine where funds are directed and the Freshman Fee Advisory Board (FFAB) recommends funding priorities. University oversight of the Board is provided through the Office of the Provost, and funds are distributed following established University business procedures and policies.
Applications for project proposals are typically submitted beginning in February and review of proposals begins in March. Information about how to apply for funding may be found here.
$10.00 per semester, paid by all freshmen
