You would clearly like some money. We would like to give you this money. But before we do so, you should probably know how much money you can request, and we'd like to know what you'll be using this money for. Just to remind you, MSC funds journeys (flights, busses, mules, etc.). If you'd like funding to stay somewhere (hotel, dorm room, tent, etc.), you should seek funding from Student Senate. Funding requests are considered by the MSC Finance Committee in a first come, first serve manner so we suggest that you submit a request as early as possible.
MSC divides its budget between student organization funding, student travel requests, and MSC meetings and events every year. Funding for travel is not guaranteed to anyone, and requests are considered on a case-by-case basis.
MSC provides funding on two tiers:
Tier 1 ($300 limit)
Research - Will you be travelling to present your research or give a seminar/workshop at a conference, poster session or other forum? If yes, this option is for you.
Leadership -Do you hold a leadership position in a recognized regional or national organization, or are you actively campaigning to hold such an office? Good job! You qualify for more money!
Tier 2 ($150 limit)
Travel to conferences, meetings, volunteer work abroad (not receiving any academic credit toward graduation requirements) or other events consistent with the mission of MSC.
