As of March 2017 please note; the Student Travel Grant has exhausted funding for professional development at this time. Limited funding does exist for students who are presenting academic work and applications are still being accepted for those requests.
Dear Member of the Campus Community:
We are pleased to inform you that recent efforts have been made to make it easier for students to apply for travel funds by consolidating the application process. Currently, review of applications and funding decisions in support of three programs will be included in this process. All funds are provided through charitable support of the Plattsburgh College Foundation provided by alumni, faculty, staff, friends, local businesses and other supporters of SUNY Plattsburgh.
Academic Purposes: This program was established in fall 1991 to provide financial assistance to students invited to present or to perform at regional, state, national or international gatherings. A total of $12,000 is available for the academic year. To be eligible for consideration, a student must be sponsored by a SUNY Plattsburgh faculty member. Funds are to support students traveling to meetings or events at which they have an official and participatory role. Funds are not to be used for expenses where financial assistance is available from other sources.
Student Professional/Personal Development: An additional $12,000 is available to support student travel for other purposes. To be eligible for consideration, a student must be sponsored by a SUNY Plattsburgh faculty or staff member who can speak to the value of the student’s participation in this event. Please note, applications for financial assistance for Study Abroad/Away will not be considered under any of the three categories.
Leadership Development: Funds are designated from the Cheryl M. Hogle Endowment to support leadership development. Applicants must demonstrate how monies awarded will enhance their ability/role as a student leader in current position held on campus. The maximum award for this category is $250.00. To be eligible for consideration, a student must be sponsored by a SUNY Plattsburgh faculty or staff member who can speak to the value of the student’s participation in this event.
If you have any questions about the application, please feel free to contact the Center for Student Involvement (ACC110) for assistance or email at 518-564-4830.
