  • This means that you must submit an application before your event happens in order to be eligible to receive a reimbursement after your allocation has been sent by SFB (see below for timelines). 
  • Remember applications are not reviewed until after the deadline, regardless of when it was turned in. Applications are not reviewed on a rolling basis
  • Organizations submitting applications where travel is involved, you MUST build in enough time for when you apply to account for applications to be reviewed, receive an allocation, and to input travel into the University Travel Request System at least 7 days prior to traveling.
