The Design Team Fund is an EUS fund which exists to provide financial support to design teams! The funding is allocated by the Design Team Fund Committee (DTFC) to teams that have design team status, have submitted their budget, and have a sponsorship package for the year. Funds are distributed according to the Design Team Fund Bylaws.

Design Team Fund Committee

The Design Team Fund Committee (DTFC) consists of the EUS President, VP Finance, and VP Student Life, as well as one representative from each design team, and is chaired and organized by the Funds Director. In addition to voting on proposals, the DTFC also votes on design team status at the Design Team Fund meeting. Although this has been done as one vote in the past, the new DTFC structure allows for the status vote to be done by secret ballot.


The DTFC meets once per semester, normally about halfway through. Written applications are submitted first, followed by a meeting of the DTFC to deliberate the allocation of the funds.

General expectations
  • A representative is present at the meeting to present and answer questions
  • No late submissions are accepted
  • Additional sources of funding outside the EUS are sought after
