Guidelines for Collaboration
- Does your event cater to the entire Georgia State student population?
- Does your event support the mission statement and purpose of the Spotlight Programs Board?
- Is your event non-philanthropic? (Meaning your event does not require donations, and no profits from the event are used for donations.)
- Will your event be open and advertised to all Georgia State students, and for the major benefit of the Georgia State community?
- Are you a Georgia State University recognized student organization?
If you answered YES to all of the above, you are eligible for co-sponsorship!
If not, you will have to contact our president at Spotlight to determine your eligibility.

A minimum of 28 days prior to the date of the event (or fourth board meeting before the event, whichever is longer).
- Projected budget must be itemized.
- There shall be a limit of $20 per expected person (i.e., if 50 people are expected, then $1,000 is the maximum that can be granted).

- All funds resulting from collaboration with the Spotlight Programs Board and ticket sales must be put toward event costs. If there is a surplus of funds on the specific event, the excess amount of the allocated money shall be returned to the Spotlight Programs Board.
