The Student Travel Grant program was created by the USUAA Travel Board and is funded entirely by student fees. Over the past few years, USUAA along with Club Council noticed a trend whereby students have continually expressed a desire to experience a variety of different leadership opportunities, both in and outside of Alaska. From conference and workshops to service-learning and civic-engagement, the USUAA Travel Board strives to make these opportunities more obtainable to students through offering the opportunity to apply for financial support.
Each student who wishes to apply for a grant must fill out an application. A series of guidelines and restrictions are also outlined in this application packet. Once the student completes all areas of the application and submits it (by the deadlines), the USUAA Travel Board will review the application and make a ruling on the level of financial support to be awarded to the student.
