Professional Association Conference Travel Fund
Students who plan to attend a national or regional professional conference and who have already applied for JAC funding are invited to apply for additional funding to help cover conference registration fees, travel, and lodging costs. This is meant to supplement the funding student professional associations receive through JAC, not to take its place, in efforts to maximize attendance at professional conferences and national career fairs. Professional associations are a valuable educational and professional resource and students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of all they have to offer, including attending conferences around the country.
In order to receive conference travel funds students are required to submit an application which includes cost breakdown, short essay response, résumé and unofficial transcript. The application cycle opens each fall and spring and will be announced through student email newsletters and Cooper Career Connection.
