UPDATED PROCESS: 2015-2016 Academic Year
The Office of Student Engagement Programs has modified the way it will allocate Student Academic Travel Funds (SATF) for the 2015-2016 academic year.
In the past, students have needed to come to the Office of Student Engagement to apply for travel funds which have been made available on a first-come, first-served basis. The result was that different colleges were unequally served by this process. Beginning September 1st, SATF will be allocated to the deans of each college to disperse at their discretion. Each college will receive funding based on their percentage of university enrollment. All student allocations, travel reservations, hotel accommodations, registration fees, etc., will be the responsibility of the dean's office or the area or individuals which they designate.
Prior to September 1, each dean will be notified of the amount SATF their college will receive. Funds will be distributed in the form of an IDT from the Office of Student Engagement Programs.
It is our sincere hope that this meets our common goal of increasing simplicity, clarity, and transparency in the allocation of funds. If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Horne at 936-468-3723
