Do you support the continued funding of one dollar and twenty-five ($1.25) per AS/UCSB membership per quarter (fall, winter, spring) and $0.83 for summer quarter for E.O.P? If reaffirmed, the fee would be subject to reaffirmation every two years as mandated by the AS constitution.



Pro Statements

One of the most benevolent and heartwarming realities of life as a Gaucho is the way in which we tirelessly support one another; individually and collectively. For over twenty-five years, the EOP Grant has helped UCSB students in dire need with funding to assist them overcome financial challenges, not unlike the challenges many of us encounter at some point in our lives. Undergraduate students who experience an emergency, may have unforeseen medical or dental expenses, be in need of optical support, face an unexpected eviction or even seek funding to apply to graduate school may be eligible to receive the grant. Your continued support of $1.25 per quarter (fall, winter, spring) and $0.83 for summer quarter can literally help positively impact the lives of your fellow Gauchos. Please vote YES on the EOP Grant Lock-In, and reaffirm your commitment to “I GAUCHO BACK!”
