Travel Grants

With support from all Student Senate members, the Rules and Finance Committee will administer up to 8 travel disbursements to provide funding for educational opportunities to students with limited financial resources. There is a $400 limit per student per School year. Students must prove that the activity/event reflects the educational purpose of the department representing them in person to the Student Government or the Rules and Finance Committee. Students will provide the committee with a letter of intent, including all dates, approximate expenses, and lodging per diem, as well as two reference letters and a W-9 form to complete processing. Students will formally share their travel experience upon their return by writing an article for the Whalesong, making a formal presentation at the Lecture Hall, or another negotiable service. No more than three students may receive travel grants for the same activity/event. If you are interested in learning more about our Travel Grant or applying for a travel grant, please come visit us in the Student Government Office in the lower Mourant building or call us at 907-796-6313. The application packet is available for download.
