Student Activity Fee


Student Activity Fee iconWelcome to the Penn State Behrend Student Activity Fee online guide! We've designed this site to address your information needs regarding the fee and to share the impact of the fee on improving the out-of-classroom experience for students at Penn State Behrend.

According to the Penn State SAF Handbook, “The purpose of the fee is to provide funds to improve the co-curricular environment for undergraduate and graduate students.” Any student, faculty, or staff can put in a proposal to the committee with the intent of satisfying this guiding principle.

You can navigate through this site to find information on proposal deadlines, obtain an application for funding, learn more about the members of the allocation committee, receive tips on how to write a successful proposal, view what resources are available for programs and activities, find examples of past events, and get help on what to do once you are funded.  For quick answers to the most frequently asked questions, visit the Student Activity Fee FAQ page.
