Unfortunately, there are limited funding opportunities for DURP students to fund or subsidize travel for conferences. SPO is committed to helping you find and access support to make attendance possible and feasible for our students.
Conference Coordination SPO has created a Google Sheet to help conference attendees coordinate their trips with other students. Feel free to add your information or even an upcoming conference you are interested in attending to facilitate coordination and collaboration.
SORF SORF is funded by student fees and must be applied for by student orgs/RSOs. SPO will apply for funding for conference travel for non-presenters. Application and Allocation Schedule below indicates important deadlines that must be followed for eligibility. Additionally, there is a paperwork process that the SPO Treasurer will need to complete with you to apply. Please contact our Treasurer for more information!
SPO Student Travel Support In some cases, SORF reimbursement does not apply and in those cases SPO accepts funding requests. SPO will reimburse expenses at the same rates as SORF. SPO requires funding requests to be submitted during the term of the conference at least 30 days in advance. As with SORF funding, there are documentation requirements. Please contact our Treasurer for more information!
