Hold up, did you say sports?
Yes! Student Council can subsidize the cost of participating in team sports in sports leagues! Please be creative — students have used this funding for more traditional activities, like soccer, and less traditional activities, like soul cycle or road races. The important thing is to make sure that all the guidelines are followed.
What can I do with the sports subsidy?
- You can be reimbursed for 50 percent of registration fees, up to a maximum amount of $50.
- You can only request a subsidy if your team has at least five Mount Sinai students or is 50 percent composed of Mount Sinai students. Only Sinai students can be subsidized.
How To Apply:
Ok – how do I get this funding?
First, one member of the team should submit the Sports Subsidy Reimbursement Form on behalf of all the Sinai participants.
- If the organization only allows one individual to register the team and pay:
- One person can fill out this form, which will require the receipt/registration, and a credit card statement, if necessary.
- If the organization allows people to register individually and pay:
- Everyone requesting reimbursement can fill out this form, which will require the receipt/registration, and a credit card statement, if necessary.
- Regardless of who is submitting the form:
- It should be submitted within four weeks of the purchase. You will receive confirmation when your form has been submitted and after it’s been approved.
- If the registration charge is over $200 (even if you are being reimbursed for less), you need a credit card statement with your (A) Name, (B) Last 4 digits, and (C) Charge with date.
- The student treasurers will approve your request and send it to Medical Education for further processing, which will take two-three weeks. If the reimbursement is less than or equal to $200 you will pick up petty cash vouchers from the front desk in the Medical Education Department, Annenberg 13-30, which you can then bring to the cashier on the Annenberg MC level (you will need to include original receipts for this). If it is greater than $200, you will receive a check from Medical Education directly or direct deposit if you are on a stipend. Reimbursements over $200 will likely take three-four weeks.
This seems complicated – who do I email with questions?
