The Student Finance Board (SFB) fully funded all events presented at its weekly meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 26.


The Asian American Association returned to present for a concert by The Filharmonic, a Los Angeles-based, all-male Filipino a capella group. The concert was previously tabled by the board twice due to concerns about the location and missing information from the club’s proposal packet, but this time, the full requested amount of $5,413 was granted to the organization.


The organization requested funding for performance costs, performer accommodations, Mayo Concert Hall equipment fees and ushers. The Filharmonic concert will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 30, in Mayo Concert Hall.


TCNJ Indian Student Association was fully funded $1,475 for its Diwali Dinner.


“This dinner is to celebrate the ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. It is the biggest and brightest festival in India, which signifies the victory of light over darkness,” the proposal read.

The organization requested funding for food, drinks, decorations and utensils. Diwali Dinner will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the Business Building Lounge.


PRISM was fully funded for two events that are set to be a part of its World AIDS Week. The organization first received $2,500 for Scott Fried’s AIDS, Love and the Secret Life of College Students.


“This event seeks to advance PRISM’s goal of bringing a renewed sense of awareness to TCNJ students about the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States,” the proposal packet read.


The organization requested funding to cover Fried’s speaking fees. Scott Fried: AIDS, Love and the Secret Life of College Students will be held on Thursday, Dec. 1, in room 101 of the Physics Building.


Funding in the amount of $369.94 was later allocated for for PRISM’s Daytime Lecture Series: HIV/AIDS in Science and Health.


“It will consist of four brief lectures by experts in their fields (specifically drug discovery, nursing, medicine and public health). Each lecture will discuss a different aspect of the fight against HIV/AIDS based on the presenter’s own experience and background of each lecturer,” the proposal packet read.


The organization requested funding the attendees’ and lecturers’ lunch, including sandwiches, drinks and dessert.


The Daytime Lecture Series: HIV/AIDS in Science & Health will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 30, in room 113 of the Education Building. PRISM’s World AIDS Week will begin on Monday, Nov. 28.


Even though SFB agrees to finance certain events, there is no guarantee these events will take place. The approval only makes the funds available.
