Win atleast 2-3 tournaments or come close, then ask for "support" dont bring up money right on the spot just ask for "suppport" But make sure before all this you have your finiacials all mapped out (NOTE: DO NOT ASK FOR STACKS OF CASH) and make sure the money amount is reasonble like $200-$300 remember your having them "support" you not "carry" you. Do not go asking for money every month(ask every 3 months) keep the school informed on how your using their "support" every now and then just to let them know that their "support" is being put to good use and is not wasted.
thats about it though, best of luck
Just to point out most schools won't give control of money to students. They generally require you to have a teacher or staff member sponsoring your team. So find a teacher who will act as a sponsor even if they don't do anything it helps get you access to school funding.
