Students who are not affiliated with any particular club/organisation but have an idea for campus programming should submit the Events Funding Application Form. The funds present an opportunity for students to plan a meaningful cultural, social, and/or academic event for the Yale-NUS community. Students should discuss their ideas for major ideas/events with someone in the Dean of Students Office before submitting their request.
Registered student clubs/organisations should default to using their own budgets for events and may only seek funding if it is absolutely necessary. Consult with the Student Organisations Manager with any questions.
Submit the Community Event Funding Application Form through Orgsync at least 4 weeks prior to the event date.
This funding is only available for registered student organisations, not individual students.
Information on travel funding is updated yearly. Please read these Travel & Conference Funding Request Guidelines before submitting your application. The Travel Funding Committee requests that the budget highlights the full cost of the travel that is being proposed. International travel and large-scale events will likely require fundraising efforts to be successful, so please plan ahead and consult your student organisation advisers and the Dean of Students Office early. Travel funding may be used for the following purposes:

Individual students who are competing at competitions, presenting academic work at an academic conference, or attending conferences for professional development may apply for travel funds from the Dean of Students Office. Funding is limited to allow support for a variety of student requests and academic and co-curricular engagement beyond Yale-NUS College. If your mode of transportation is via flight, please submit your request as early as possible to avoid fare increases. If applying for travel beyond Southeast Asia, students should consider if the trip’s objectives could be achieved and experienced locally or in the Southeast Asian region (i.e. through other nearby conferences or competitions).
Considerations that are taken into account when reviewing requests:
2. You will be notified on the outcome of your request within 2 weeks. It is recommended that you apply early to avoid increments in flight costs, etc.
Please note that the Dean of Students Office does not fund travel during reading and exam weeks.
