In light of the President’s email to the Buffalo State Community on March 12, 2020, the Graduate Student Association is prohibited from providing any funding for any travel expenses (both internationally and domestically) until further notice.
All requests for the 2020-2021 academic year must be made by May 1, 2021.

If you are interested in applying for funding from the GSA, please follow these instructions.

To view the required criterion used for funding requests, please view the GSA Funding Rubric. Students must meet the first four criterion and submit all required documents. Conferences and events, projects, and presentations are the most common types of funding requests made through the GSA. Students are not required to meet one or any combination of these criterion as long as the request falls within the parameters listed. Please allow 7-10 days to process and review all requests. Approved requests will be funded as reimbursement to students and are subject to change based on the expenses incurred. Questions can be sent directly to the GSA Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org
