The following are the applications for individual Club Awards for this past 2011-2012 academic year. While these applications may change, we wanted to give clubs and idea of the questions we will be asking so you can prepare all year for your application. Winners will be announced at the annual Club and Organization banquet..


What is it?
It is an incentive based program developed to achieve three main goals:
• Give more funding to clubs
• Allows clubs to earn the funding, thus justifying the extra funding, and in turn improve Eastern’s campus
• Avoid placing any penalties on clubs who do not qualify for extra funding.

How does it Work?
Clubs earn points in 5 ways
• The 5 ways to earn points are:
o Hosting events, Hosting Student Activities Leadership events, submitting minutes, attending club council, and winning awards given by BAM.
• The clubs are then placed into tiers based on their relative point totals.
• If a club falls into either the “gold” or “silver” tier they will qualify for extra funding.

How to Earn Points:
• Winning Club of the Year: 10 Points
• Winning any of BAM’s other awards: 5 Points
• Having 5 members attend a Student Activities Leadership Program: 5 points (Maxed out at 5 points per program)
• Hosting a Student Activities Leadership Program: 3 Points
• Attending Club Council: 3 Points
• Hosting a Program: 2 Points
• Hosting an Event: 1 Points
• Hosting a Meeting, with Submitted Minutes: 1 Point (Maxed at 2 points per month)
• Coordinating an Event/Program with another club: 1 Point (This is in addition to the point(s) awarded for the Event/Program)
