Collegiate Chapter Allocations


SAE Collegiate Chapters may qualify to receive an allocation (dues reimbursement) from SAE International annually. If eligible, you may receive USD $5 per paid student member, based on the total paid membership for the calendar year.

These funds may be used for any of the following:

  • Promote Chapter meetings and activities
  • Hold an SAE membership drive
  • Provide a honorarium or gift to a speaker
  • Support your Collegiate Design Series team(s)

Activities that are strictly social should be self-supporting and financed by those who participate in them.


  • Submit a slate of elected student officers to SAE by November 1st of the academic year.
  • Maintain at least 15 student members each year.
  • Faculty Advisor information must be current and they must be an SAE International Member.


  • Allocations are based on the total number of paid student members for the year, as of December 31.
  • Membership qualifications will be reviewed to determine eligibility in January.
  • Chapters that qualify and have submitted the new student officer form will receive a check in late February/early March of the following year.
  • Checks are made payable to the SAE Collegiate Branch and mailed to the Faculty Advisor.

The following are not eligible for allocations:

  • Universities in countries where we have SAE Affiliate programs are not eligible.
