Student Organization Travel Fund

The Student Organization Travel Fund (SOTF) is for registered student organizations that have a need to travel off-campus to regional, state, or national organizational events, competitions, training, etc. to represent the University of Tennessee. The organization’s travel should be within the scope of the organization’s mission and purpose. Travel should also compliment the mission of the university and increase the effectiveness of the organization. The SOTF is funded by the Student Program and Services Fee.



Currently there are no current travel restrictions within and outside of the state of TN; however, please be aware that due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, funding may be withdrawn and/or travel restrictions maybe reinstated at any time.   If COVID-19 travel restrictions are reinstated, the SOTF criteria and timeline will be revised  and affected organizations will be contacted as soon as possible. Please check UT COVID-19 and the CSE SOTF Info for the most up to date information.
