Travel refers to all student travel, including but not limited to conferences, trainings, and leadership development, organized and funded through student clubs and organizations in accordance with the travel policies and procedures of the Student Activity Fee Accounts Office.
Travel can only be sponsored and funded through the Organization Account Funds or PanSGA Professional Development Grant. Student Government Associations (SGAs) are NOT allowed to allocate funding and sponsor students or student organizations for conferences and any other travel-related expenses under any circumstance or condition.
Student organizations can fundraise to use organizational funds to attend conferences outside of the PanSGA PDG and receive reimbursement for travel-applicable expenses as listed in the Travel section of the Student Activity Fee Accounts Manual. Organizations must submit a Travel Request/Registration Form in advance of at least 7 business days of travel to receive approval for their organization-funded trip and have their reimbursements processed by the Student Activity Fee Accounts Office upon conclusion of the trip.
All PanSGA and SGA funded conference related travel MUST go through the PanSGA Professional Development Grant (PDG). This grant provides students with the opportunity to be reimbursed for applicable conference travel-related expenses if they will be attending or presenting in conferences during the academic year. Applicants can only APPLY FOR and/or RECEIVE two (2) Professional Development Grants per academic year. There is a COMBINED maximum of $1,500.00 awarded for both applications.
For students interested in applying for the PanSGA PDG, please refer to the NSU Pan Student Government Association's SharkHub for registration to their informational sessions taking place in August and contact the team at email@example.com with any additional questions on this opportunity.
The Fall 2023 Professional Development Grant Application will open in mid-August on SharkHub. The application will list all eligibility requirements and instructions for applicants. This funding opportunity will have the potential to reimburse successful applicants for conferences taking place between June 1, 2023 - December 31, 2023.
