Travel Funding

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 Dean’s Fellows and the Dean of Students Office early. Travel funding may be used for the following purposes:

  • Enrich the on-campus activities of a student organisation through participation in a conference, competition, rally, lecture, or similar event.
  • Assist student organisations in providing additional learning experiences for members beyond what is available on-campus and in Singapore.
  • Help mitigate the cost of international travel for Yale-NUS students. (Student groups will likely need to contribute or raise additional funds to cover the costs of international travel.)
