SPACES 2020-2021 Program Proposal

SPACES 2020-2021 Program Proposal

SPACES provides support for a number of programs that support the larger mission of achieving education equity.

SPACES provides funding for student-initiated and student-run access and retention programs of SPACES Student Staff Members and registered UCSD student organization through SIPHR and SIAPS which follow the mission of SPACES. In general, programs that target K‐14 students receive funds through SIAPS, while programs that target undergraduates receive funds through SIPHR. Based on the objectives, goals, and target participants of the program, the funding source will be determined by the SPACES Advisor.

In particular, the program, activity, or service should be student-initiated, student-run, and focused on improving access to higher education and/or retention within higher education for educationally disadvantaged students. For funding purposes, an educationally disadvantaged student shall be defined as having one or more of the following characteristics:

Lacks materials
Lacks college preparedness
Lacks cultural resources to provide multicultural curriculums
Attended a school with low per pupil expenditure
Attended a school which historically discriminated through tracking
Attended a 4th or 5th quintile performance school in the state
Is socio-economically disadvantaged
Is a first-generation college student
Is a non-traditional student (Veteran, returning…)
Is disabled

Altogether, SPACES funds a broad range of program and services. However, all events should align with the SPACES, SIAPS, SIPHR, or SPICEE Missions & Visions which can be found here: Funding Manual
