Chapter Representative Travel Assistance Program
Alpha Kappa Delta will provide a travel grant for chapter representatives who accompany students to regional sociology meetings.
The chapter's students MUST be approved for AKD student travel funding; however, chapter representative travel applications should be sent in before your students’ travel application has been approved.
AMOUNT AVAILABLE FOR FUNDING
Alpha Kappa Delta will provide up to $500 for chapter representatives who accompany students to regional sociology meetings.
Please note the amount requested may not be what you are approved for as the amount available is prorated based on the number of eligible requests received in our office.
Funding is very limited and the Executive Office will be keeping a dated log of submissions as they arrive in the office. We ask that chapter representatives request only what they believe they will need (up to the $500 limit) so that AKD can fund as many chapter representatives as possible.
Fall: October 15, 2012

TERMS OF FUNDING
Send completed application form and travel release form to AKD@lemoyne.edu with an appropriate subject heading (ex. Chapter Representative Travel Funding to ESS). Requests are reviewed in the order received. Please submit your application BEFORE travel.
