Student Cultural Programming Fee Committee

The Student Cultural Programming Fee (SCPF) was established to support cultural awareness, encourage diversity, educate the University of Illinois community as a whole, and provide a forum for the development, exploration and improvement of cultural programs. Any student organization affiliated with the University of Illinois and/or University program or department may apply for SCPF funding.

The SCPF Advisory Board includes both graduate and undergraduate students who have submitted an application with a letter of support from one of the cultural centers on-campus, and completed the interview process, conducted and screened by the SCPF graduate assistant and staff advisors. Student board members provide direction and allocation of resources for culture-specific programming for 1) African American, 2) Asian American, 3) Latina/o, 4) Native American, 5) lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and 6) women’s programs and activities. The board makes recommendations to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs for final approval.


2 student members for each cultural programming board (total of 12 board members)
1 Graduate Assistant
1 Staff Advisor

Student board members commit to one year, and may serve the following year based on satisfactory work.
