Law School funding of student events or travel is centralized in the JD Grants Committee, which was created by the Dean in 2014 to ensure a fair, consistent, and transparent process for distributing law school funds. Students and student organizations must direct their funding requests to the committee, not to individual administrators or deans.
Please review the instructions, forms, and deadlines on this webpage before applying for funding.
Planning for 2021-2022
2021-2022 University Policies for student organizations
The first link provides information for planning local events. The second provides travel information. As of Nov. 8, 2021, the university is no longer restricting all international travel.
Note that both of these policies include links to many other policies and documents. Please be sure to read any applicable linked information. We recommend that you create a checklist specific to your event from the information provided in the various policies and documents. You must comply with all requirements for your event.
Planning for spring 2022
Revised funding request forms for 2021-2022 were posted on the JD Grants webpage on June 30, 2021. Virtual events will continue to be an option. The forms for requesting funding for virtual events will remain on the webpage.
These are the next two deadlines for 2021-2022. (See the Deadlines page for the deadlines for the entire year.) These deadlines apply to funding requests for co-curricular activities, student organizations, and individual students.
