Student Government Opportunities
All students enrolled at the University of Alaska-Southeast who pay the Juneau campus student Governance Fee will be members of USUAS-JC and shall be referred to as the Student Body.
With support from all Student Senate members, the Rules and Finance Committee will administer up to 8 travel disbursements to provide funding for educational opportunities to students with limited financial resources. There is a $400 limit per student per School year. Students must prove that the activity/event reflects the educational purpose of the department representing them in person to the Student Government or the Rules and Finance Committee. Students will provide the committee with a letter of intent, including all dates, approximate expenses, and lodging per diem, as well as two reference letters and a W-9 form to complete processing. Students will formally share their travel experience upon their return by writing an article for the Whalesong, making a formal presentation at the Lecture Hall, or another negotiable service. No more than three students may receive travel grants for the same activity/event. If you are interested in learning more about our Travel Grant or applying for a travel grant, please come visit us in the Student Government Office in the lower Mourant building or call us at (907)796-6306.

Each academic year (Fall plus Spring Semester), USUAS-JC will fund two (2) two thousand dollar ($2000) scholarships to qualifying student body members who are enrolled each semester in twelve or more on-going credit hours and are participating in the ISEP-Exchange program. If you are interested you must complete a scholarship application which will be reviewed by the Academic Exchange Office, and Student Government.
