Student Educational Travel (SET)
SET splits the allocations evenly for each term. There is only funding available for travel between April 1-June 15.
Also, Civil Engineering, Biology, and Social Work have reached their maximum allocations for the year.
SET (formally AAA) has a committee that consists of up to four faculty and four students appointed annually to allocate travel grants to students to present at conferences or to give presentations.
SET has a budget of approximately $20,000, and average proposals should be no more than $500 per person. Groups of students can apply together. No group or department can be granted more than $2500 in an academic year. SET cannot fund international travel.
