Rules and Regulations

 


PURPOSE
Alpha Kappa Delta will provide a travel grant for chapter representatives who accompany students to regional sociology meetings.

The chapter's students MUST be approved for AKD student travel funding; however, chapter representative travel applications should be sent in before your students’ travel application has been approved.

AMOUNT AVAILABLE FOR FUNDING

Alpha Kappa Delta will provide up to $250 for chapter representatives who accompany students to regional sociology meetings.


Please note the amount requested may not be what you are approved for as the amount available is prorated based on the number of eligible requests received in our office.

Funding is very limited and the Executive Office will be keeping a dated log of submissions as they arrive in the office. We ask that chapter representatives request only what they believe they will need (up to the $250 limit) so that AKD can fund as many chapter representatives as possible.

ELIGIBILITY

  • Applicant must be an AKD chapter representative
  • Applicant must be a Voting member of AKD
  • Applicant’s chapter must be in compliance with IRS and AKD
  • Applicant must be accompanying student(s) who have been approved for AKD funding
    • This application may be sent in before your students’ travel application has been approved
