Travel Grants

Southeastern's Student Government Association awards Travel Grants to provide an opportunity for Southeastern students to enhance both their academic and leadership skills.  Up to $500.00 for one or two students and up to $1,000.00 for three or more students may be awarded toward the cost of any such travel.  In order for the grant to be awarded, a bill to fund the grant must be written and passed by the Student Government Association Senate.  See the image below for an overview of the process:
