SGA assists student groups, along with their respective schools, to attend conferences. While seeking funding from SGA, you must also seek funding from your department or school (if applicable) and documentation must be provided with the application. Fully fill out the request form below and return it to the SGA office. A representative must then come to a Finance Committee meeting to present on behalf of their organization. Appropriations meetings are held twice a year, once in the Fall semester and once in the Spring semester. Upon approval from the Senate your organization will be contacted with an allocation.
To request Conference funding, please fill out the Conference Appropriations Packet and return it to the SGA Office (302 Union).
Conference appropriation documents are now posted on Campus Link. The funding provided will only include conferences between January 1st and June 30th. All other dates will have to wait until next semester.
There are four forms and documents:
- S.G.A. Conference Appropriations Disclaimer (in packet)
- S.G.A. Conference Appropriations Process Outline (in packet)
- S.G.A. Conference Request Form (in packet)
- S.G.A. Conference Attendance Agreement Form
Please prepare the documents and read them thoroughly. As always, please realize that not every organization may be allocated funding and it is up to the SGA Finance Committee to make that judgment. Specified forms are due no later than Tuesday, February 3rd at 3 PM. Sign-up times for SGA allocations are in front of the office. They are happening on Sunday, February 8th in 613 of the Duquesne Union. Each organization can sign up for a 10-minute slot. For any specific questions regarding this process, you may contact the Finance Committee Chair, Tyler McCardell at email@example.com.
