What projects should UST fund with Pepsi contract money?

St. Thomas students, faculty and staff are invited to submit proposals to the Beverage Task Force Committee. An exclusive contract with Pepsi provides $50,000 annually to fund projects that enhance the student experience. Over the past several years, the contract funds have been used to support a wide variety of projects that may not have regular sources of funding. The average cost of items funded last year was approximately $1,500.

If you would like to submit a proposal, download an application from the Campus Life Web site.

To receive consideration:

  • Proposals must be for the purchase of durable goods that will enhance the student experience.
  • The item purchased should have a life cycle of at least three years.
  • Any recognized student organization or department may request funding.
  • Requests from departments must have the signature of the department head, who has to agree to maintain any equipment after its purchase.

Applications will be accepted throughout the academic year. Questions? Send e-mail or call co-chairs: Mary Ann Ryan, Department of Campus and Residence Life, (651) 962-6133; or Dan Anderson, All College Council president, (651) 962-6145.
