Capital Improvements

What is Capital Improvements?

Each year, the CUSG Senate allocates $50,000 of the Student Activity Fee funds to tangible projects that will create positive and impactful change on our campus. This process is called Capital Improvement, and any member of the Clemson family is welcome to apply each year, including all undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff.

This fiscal year, we have $70,000 available to allocate, and the application is live now! The application will close December 9th, 2022 at 11:59 pm. We highly encourage anyone with a project idea to apply, and for any questions, concerns, or more information, please contact the Senate Secretary, Amanda Murray, at amurra9@clemson.edu.
