Travel Fund

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE 03/10/2020UT Coronavirus Updates:

As coronavirus (COVID-19) cases continue to emerge, we want to keep you updated on the latest decisions impacting use of the Student Organization Travel Fund (SOTF). Per Chancellor Plowman’s e-mail to the campus community, effective immediately, we are suspending nonessential UT-related international and domestic travel outside the state of Tennessee. This includes any travel funds awarded through the SOTF outside of the state of Tennessee through March 31st . If your organization was granted funds to travel out of state through March 31st, all plans should be cancelled immediately. This includes hotel reservations, registration fees, etc. We request that your organization make reasonable efforts to recoup any funds already paid for planned travel. The university is prepared to reimburse students when funds cannot be recouped through cancellations.

In order to mitigate risk, even without using the SOTF, we also do not recommend student organizations to travel to represent the university at their own cost.

If your organization was awarded travel funds to travel after April 1st, we encourage you to carefully consider your travel plans to mitigate risk.  As developments arise, we will continue to communicate via e-mail and post information to the SOTF website

———————————————————————————————————–

The Student Organization Travel Fund is offered to registered student organizations who have a need to travel to off-campus, regional, state, or national organizational events, competitions, etc. to represent the University of Tennessee.  The organization’s travel should be within the scope of the organization’s mission and purpose, as well as benefit the university and increase the effectiveness of the organization.

Organizations are encouraged to submit their applications early in advance of their travel as possible.  Applications should be submitted no later than 15 business days/ 3 weeks prior to submission notification date (check Guideline/Criteria document for application submission and approval deadlines)
