The RUSA Allocations Board is an affiliated committee of RUSA that operates separately from RUSA and is responsible for the allocation of funds to registered Rutgers University Student Organizations as well as various registered events on an as needed basis.

The goal of the Allocations Board is to promote and support diversity of programming made available to all Rutgers University Students through the fair and efficient use of the student activity fee.  RUSA Allocations provides over a million dollars worth of program funding to over 400 different organizations at Rutgers University New Brunswick campus.  

We are dedicated to serving all student organizations the best way possible.
