SGA Travel Funding

As a service to students, SGA provides travel funding for University organizations and individuals. Please review the SGA Procedures and SGA Travel Guidelines prior to applying for funding.

SGA travel funds are awarded as a reimbursement after the travel is completed.

The application for travel is open July to June each fiscal year and students may apply as early as they like, however, all applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by the priority deadlines each term and must comply with the timelines referenced in the SGA Travel Procedures and Guidelines. Travel priority deadlines are established each Academic year. Students who submit travel requests by the priority deadlines are more likely to receive greater funding.

Please note- funds are limited and no applicant is guaranteed funding. Once all funds for a specific term are awarded, the application will close. Funds are awarded based on the applicants' ability to meet the standards outlined in the selection rubric.

Priority Deadlines

  • Fall 2020: September 15, 2020
  • Spring 2021: February 10, 2021
