How to Request Funding

To request funding support from McCormick for your graduate organization, contact Paula Straaton, Business Administrator of Graduate Studies, in Tech L254. She can be reached via email or by phone at 847-491-3553.

You will need to provide her with a completed Activity Funding Support Form.

  • There are no deadlines or due dates to request funding. The form may be submitted any time throughout the year.
  • Once the form is submitted, the turnaround time is usually no more than seven business days.
  • If your situation is an emergency, please indicate that on the form.

You will be notified via email if your funding request has been approved or declined by the Assistant Dean of Graduate Studies. If approved, funds will be transferred to your organization’s chart string. You will be notified of the transfer by Paula Straaton.
