Introduction

Please review these two documents for information about the JD Grants Committee's general funding process and about other funding sources available for some events.  

Getting Started

Planning events requires careful attention to details and to the many university and law school requirements.  The following list highlights some of the most important considerations at the start of event planning.

Travel Awards

For 2022-2023, the process for funding student travel will change significantly.  The law school is shifting funding from a pre-payment and reimbursement approach to Travel Awards.  With Travel Awards, students will receive money directly from the Bursar's Office, and then they will make their own travel arrangements.  Students will not have to work with the university's travel agency, use the Concur site, or follow most university travel requirements.

The change is the result of a number of factors, including federal laws and university policies.  Departments across campus are shifting to the Travel Awards process.  

By June 30, a new Travel Award Funding Request form will be posted on the JD Grants "Forms" webpage.
