Law School funding of student events or travel is centralized in the J.D. 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 below before applying for funding.
Funding of events and travel is governed by a number of university policies and rules. For example, the university will not pay for alcohol at student-sponsored events.
