ASI provides leadership funding for student organizations’ events and individual student attendance at professional conferences. The ASI Executive Vice President and professional staff members determine the allocation of these funds.
ASI has allocated approximately $30,000 to ASI Leaderhip Funding (ALF). Approved funding is based on eligibility per the ALF Guidelines and Instructions. Awarded funds are on a first come, first served basis. Application due PRIOR to conference attendance.
Due to CSUSM’s restriction on travel and events, we have made the difficult decision to not open applications for on-campus events for student organizations. We agree with guidance from health agencies that convening large groups of otherwise healthy people could increase the potential for infections of vulnerable populations, away from the event or conference itself.
For the 20/21 Academic Year, ASI will provide leadership funding directly to recognized student organizations but will offer registration for individuals to attend online professional conferences. The ASI Executive Vice President and professional staff members determine the allocation of these funds. ASI has allocated approximately $30,000 to ALF this year.
The application will be posted on this website by October 1, 2020.
Approvals are based on eligibility per the ALF Guidelines and Instructions. Awarded funds are on a first come, first served basis. Application due PRIOR to conference attendance. The funding is available for conferences held between August 1, 2020 and May 28, 2021. We will not fund any conferences after May 28, 2021.

The applicant will receive an email noting the decision of their application. If approved, recipients are required to submit proof of attendance and a written statement to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to process payment for their awarded funds. Students will not receive reimbursement unless proper documentation is submitted.
Due to travel restrictions and safety guidelines,
Effective September 27, 2016, California Assembly Bill No. 1887 prohibits ASI from approving a request for ASI-funded or ASI-sponsored travel to any state that, after June 26, 2015, has enacted a law that:
This prohibition currently extends to the following states: Alabama, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. This list may be subject to change.
Application must be submitted at least 72 hours prior to the conference start date and time. Application must be submitted prior to attendance.
You must be approved to receive funds prior to submitting proof for reimbursement. Upon submitting your application, you will receive notice of approval with 5-7 business days. This notice will include information of how to seek reimbursement.
