UWSA Student Conference/Travel Fund Award

The UWSA Student Conference/Travel Fund Award supports UWSA members with costs associated with travel to conferences or research opportunities. The fund is intended to assist students with the costs of participating in and/or travelling to educational endeavours which align with the mission statement of the UWSA and/or benefit the local or student community. Applicants must be able to demonstrate the relevancy of the opportunity to their degree, research project and/or community. Preference may be given to students towards the end of their undergraduate degree or graduate students.

Recipients must have completed at least 30 credit hours and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. Eligible expenses include registration costs, airfare, transportation, accommodations, and meals. The UWSA Student Conference/Travel Fund Award is intended to act as a reimbursement program and applicants may be required to provide documentation of costs. Students can only access funds once per year.
