You can propose what to do with Pepsi funds

St. Thomas students, faculty and staff are invited to submit proposals to the Beverage Task Force Committee. The committee approves funding for support of student-focused initiatives, using the proceeds from an exclusive beverage contract with Pepsi.

Over the past several years, the contract funds have been used to fund a variety of needs and projects that may not have regular sources of funding. The average cost of items funded is approximately $1,500.

Applications are accepted throughout the academic year. The Beverage Task Force generally meets two to three times during the academic year to review proposals. The application is available online through 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 university department may request funding.
  • Requests from departments must have the signature of the department head who also must agree to maintain any equipment after its purchase.

Applications will be accepted throughout the academic year.
