McGeorge students are eligible for up to $150 (per student, per academic year) in funding to help defray the costs associated with attending professional conferences and recruiting events. To request funding, please complete the following form. You will be asked to provide general information about the event, the relevance to your professional development and student community interests, and a list of estimated expenses. Priority will be given to requests that contribute to and further the goals of McGeorge School of Law.
Please plan ahead, because funding requests must be submitted at least two weeks in advance of the qualifying conference or recruiting event. Requests will not be considered after the event has occurred.
Approved requests may be reimbursed for the following expenditures, up to a total of $150: registration fees, hotel, airfare, transportation, meals, and fuel. No reimbursement will be given for alcoholic beverages. Students should make an effort to reduce costs by sharing transportation and hotel rooms, where possible.
You will be notified if your request was approved (and for what amount) via email within five to seven business days of submitting a completed form. You must keep all receipts for the approved expenses and submit them to the Career Development Office. Once the receipts are received, a refund will be processed for personal reimbursement by the Business Office (either by check or direct deposit); this may take up to two weeks.
As consideration for receiving these funds, you must provide a one- page conference report within ten days of your return. This report should describe the overall conference, the specific value of your attendance, and general information on how the experience can be shared with the McGeorge community. Reimbursements will not be processed until the conference report is received.
