What is the Student Travel Fund?

The maximum contribution for a group (4 or more students) is $5,000.

What is the Student Travel Committee (STC)?

The Student Travel Committee (STC) is comprised of students, faculty, and staff who review student applications. The STC members can approve the full-proposed amount, partial amount, or deny the entire application request of all applicants. The committee jurisdiction of approval only includes transportation, lodging, and registration fees. Per diem for food is not compensated.

How do I know if I’m eligible to receive funding from the Student Travel Committee?

Undergraduate students with at least a 2.5 GPA who have completed at least 30 credits are eligible. Graduate students with at least a 3.0 GPA who have completed at least 12 credits are eligible. Transfer students in their first semester must submit an official transcript from their previous institution.
