The ASM Travel Grant provides funds for Registered Student Organization (RSO) travel to conferences during the academic year (fall and spring semester) that serve to further and enhance the mission of the RSO. Travel should educate traveling RSO members, allowing them to bring new information back to the UW campus.
Changes in the UW-Madison Covid-19 response may impact travel grant funding.
RSOs who are interested must apply for the grant 42 full days (6 weeks) prior to the travel start date. After applying, groups attend a virtual GAC hearing and, if approved, a virtual workshop with an ASM financial staff member. No grant funding can be spent prior to the workshop with an ASM financial staff member.
Details on each step in the grant process are outlined in the following tabs.
The ASM Grant Allocation Committee (GAC) is responsible for awarding grants to registered student organizations (RSOs) for travel, events, and operations. Funding for these grants comes from segregated university fees. The GAC maintains its own policies and procedures which you can view below. Once the academic year begins, these will be followed consistently for all applicants, and any revisions will not take effect until the following year.
Please review the ASM Travel Grant Policies & Procedures for information on eligibility, and the application and hearing process.
If a grant is approved by the GAC, the grant contacts will need to attend a grant workshop with ASM staff. Grant workshops will be held virtually. The grant contacts listed on the application will need to complete a canvas module with an independent portion and a virtual meeting portion. More information will be provided in the RSO award notice, following GAC hearing and approval.
