SMAC-More Than Just an Acronym

In the face of a difficult economy, would you like to know why you are charged a ten-dollar fee every term that you register? That fee goes to the Chapter 606 Student Monies and Allocation Committee. This committee exists to fund many clubs, student projects and scholarships. This committee is comprised of students and faculty, but is chaired by a student. The purpose is mainly that “it is money from students, for students, by students.”

Generally any student organization can apply if they are in good standing with the university and registered with the Office of Student Activities. In the past Chapter 606 has funded major’s clubs going to conferences, building of the Tech SAE Baja cars, and student research projects.

Each organization is given time to present the request to the committee for review and questions before they vote on the proposal.

Student organizations are encouraged to apply for funding from Chapter 606. For more information refer to http://www.tntech.edu/studentaffairs/smac.html.
