If your request receives final Student Senate approval, contact the Janice Day at or 852-8338 the day after the Student Senate meeting for instructions on how to receive your award.

 Graduate students must apply for travel funds through the Graduate Student Council.  No double dipping with several SGA funding sources will be allowed.

If any of the above guidelines are violated, your organization may forfeit the opportunity to apply for SGA funds again.


As a representative of  the organization listed above, I agree to the above SGA guidelines.  I also understand that our organization cannot be reimbursed for prior expenditures.  The trip must take place after final Student Senate approval at the Student Senate meeting.  Failure to attend both the Appropriations Committee and Student Senate meetings will void the request.  Final paperwork including travel vouchers must be completed and submitted to the SGA Program Assistant by UofL’s cutoff date for end of the fiscal year expenditures.  Failure to do so automatically voids the award.

There are no exceptions to any of the above information.

Type name as acknowledgement of guidelines listed above

 **The Appropriations Committee policy is to award a limit of $125 per person up to six students per organizations per semester.  Again, graduate students should request funds through the Graduate Student Council.
