Request for Funding

The Office of Collegewide Student Affairs is happy to announce that we will again be able to provide a limited number of Travel Grants to students to attend the conference. These awards are intended to encourage students who could not otherwise attend to be able to engage in this professional development event. They come with rules and stipulations (found on the last page of the application) that clearly outline the rights of the student and the College. Your application is not complete until you sign the statement agreeing that you understand these stipulations. The Office of Collegewide Student Affairs makes every effort to assure that the funds are used appropriately and in accordance with state and college guidelines. 

What Does the Travel Grant cover? 

  • The travel grant covers a pre-determined stipend amount for travel reimbursement to and from the conference location from your permanent address

  • The travel grant covers your hotel for the two nights of the conference (April 5th and 6th only!)

  • The travel grant DOES NOT cover any incurred incidental costs 

  • The travel grant DOES NOT cover any costs associated with guest attendance
