Student-travel Grant

On March 11, President Bachand sent out a university-wide email regarding SVSU's policies for dealing with the coronavirus threat. The following policy was included in the message:

"We strongly discourage SVSU-sponsored domestic travel by faculty, staff and students. Faculty, staff and students should consult with their supervisor prior to any trips. We may further restrict domestic travel with little advance notice, as circumstances warrant."

In accordance with this policy, the UGRP regretfully will be suspending any decisions regarding funding for student-travel grants through April 17 and will not be accepting applications at this time.
