Eligible Expenses (What can be funded?)
Funds may be requested for transportation, registration and lodging costs.
Applications are usually submitted approximately 6 weeks in advance of departure, but may be submitted up to six months prior to the trip. Applications submitted less than two weeks prior to the date of departure will immediately be rejected. Funds are awarded on a first-applied/first-considered basis. The priority deadlines include September 20th (Fall) and December 15th (Spring). Funds are limited and when exhausted no additional requests may be funded.Every effort will be made to review your application and notify you of the decision in a timely manner (typically within 5 business days).

Upon Return to Campus:
Once all travel information has been submitted, a reimbursement will be processed, if necessary. Please allow 2-3 weeks for the process to be completed. If you are on Texas State payroll and receive direct deposit, your reimbursement will also be directly deposited. If you are not on Texas State payroll, you will be notified when a check is ready for pick-up in JC Kellam.

- have no record of formal discipline with the University
- not be a regular faculty/staff member of the University

In order to serve as many students as possible, no more than two students will receive funding to attend the same program and preference will be given to those that have not previously received funding. This fund is not available for academic-related travel (for a class project or individual research interests) or competitions/tournaments without a leadership workshop, training, or conference component.
