Apply for Funding


The OPAL Fund was established to provide support for programs and events that are an expression of OPAL's goals, prioritizing proposals that receive little to no support from other sources. Funds are a shared resource of OPAL, comprised of contributions from all advising areas and the central budget. Due to a large number of requests throughout the year, OPAL's contributions range from $25 - $500. Funds are limited to the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms.

OPAL Fund is currently closed until Fall 2023.

Please note: Applications are due by 12PM on Fridays and review meetings are scheduled for the following Tuesday.

Barrier Removal Fund

The Office of Financial Aid oversees a few funds for extraordinary circumstances that students may encounter. Examples of these may include emergency travel, assistance with personal needs or assistance with educational needs not covered by financial aid. Priority for these funds will be given to students on financial aid, but all requests will be considered. Generally, funds are limited and will be disbursed to a student once per academic year.

To request these funds, please apply on DartHub, through the Financial Aid Tile.

Please note: the Barrier Removal Fund is not managed or disbursed by OPAL.
