SSW Student Conference Fund

The SSW Student Conference Fund is a fund which supports student attendance at professional conferences through small monetary awards to individual students. Guidelines for application to the fund are:

  • Any SSW student in the Full or Extended program can apply for funds.
  • A student is eligible once per academic year.
  • The funds can be applied to the cost of registration up to $250.
  • Conferences must be relevant to the student’s study of professional social work.
  • To apply, students must complete a brief application, a brochure or other documentation from the conference should be attached to the application.
  • Students must submit the application for approval at least one month prior to the conference.
  • A student must be in good standing and cannot miss class to attend a conference. In most situations, students should not miss time from practicum placement. Any missed time from practicum placement requires pre-approval by practicum instructor and advisor.
  • Students receiving funds from other SSW sources may not be eligible for support from this fund.
