  • Funding is for currently enrolled undergraduate students only. All students funded must have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average at the time of the trip, conference, or request.
  • Requests for funding must be made in advance of the conference or requested event.
  • If attending the conference, applicants are expected to pay a portion of their own costs.
  • Students are expected to seek additional financial support from their departments, college councils, the Government of the Student Body, or other appropriate sources.
  • The application form, which appears below, is to be completed by the student making the request. This student assumes the responsibility for providing expense documentation after the conference.
