Forming a Student Organization

The medical school has a budget to support student-run organizations, but there are certain things student organizers need to do to be eligible for funding.

In order for an organization to be officially recognized and eligible for funding, the leader(s) should complete a registration form and a budget form each year by September 1.  Please review the Guidelines for Student Organizations before developing the budget.

The registration form and budget should provide:

  • A list of the active student members
  • The faculty advisor
  • The name of the person responsible for the budget
  • The objectives of the organization
  • Programmatic plans for the next year 

If students from other Yale schools are involved, those schools will be asked to contribute to the operating budget. Other sources of funding for student activities include:
