Student Council's Student Project Grants are a yearly opportunity for students to receive funding for projects that contribute to the Columbia community. Funding for projects has ranged from equipment to set up a recording studio to materials for performance costumes. Project grants typically occur in the fall semester.

Funding at Columbia University (F@CU) is a yearly event in which the four undergraduate student councils decide allocation amounts for the student group governing boards and Bacchanal.

F@CU generally occurs during the spring semester reading week as a two- day event. During the event, the student councils present the amount of their budget they plan to allocate at F@CU, and governing boards and Bacchanal present allocation requests. The student councils then deliberate over allocations, announce decisions, and consider any appeals.
