Conference Guidelines and Recipient Obligations

1. Which conferences are eligible?

The conference must be related to campus sustainability in order for the student to receive COS funding. Conferences must be located in the United States. 

2.  What expenses are approved for reimbursement?

Conference registration fees, lodging and transportation expenses are eligible for reimbursement.  See the Student Activities Conference Funding website for a detailed list of approved expenses.

3. What do students have to do after the conference?

Students must either make a short (5-10 minute) presentation to the Steering Committee at a monthly meeting following the conference, or submit a two page report about the conference if they are unable to attend a Steering Committee meeting. This ensures that both COS and the campus community benefit from the student's experience.
