C3 Funding Application

This is a fund intended to sponsor events that help to develop the Haas brand in outside events as well as further students' career prospects. As the name suggests, this fund can help cover student's expenses when participating of career treks, conferences and case competitions, up to a maximum of $150 per student per academic year. 

To request funding, submit one application per event (i.e., one for all the attendees), including all costs and attendees through this link:
Funding applications will be reviewed by MBAA officers and results will be released at the end of each semester.

Maintaining "Active Club" Status

  • Inactive Clubs

    • A club is considered ‘inactive’ if it fails to satisfy each of the three guidelines above for 2 consecutive semesters

    • Inactive clubs will no longer have the ability to collect dues from potential members, although they can still accept new members and raise funds through other means such as charging for specific events.

    • Inactive clubs can regain ‘active status’ by satisfying the criteria used for New Clubs (see below)

  • New Club Formation

    • Potential clubs seeking official status under the MBAA must satisfy the following criteria within one full semester

      • Membership: Recruit at least 10% of student body (~48 members)

      • Events: Organize and hold at least 4 events

    • Potential clubs must submit their proof of satisfying the criteria at the end of the semester to the VP of Clubs. The MBAA, Program Office and CMG (for industry clubs) will review applications and make a decision on the status of the new club.
