Student Chapter Travel Grants
Animal Legal Defense Fund’s student chapters can apply for funding to support animal law projects that advance our mission, as well as travel to animal law events. Events like the annual Animal Law Conference, co-presented by Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark Law School, and the Lewis & Clark student chapter, are wonderful educational and networking opportunities for students interested in animal law.
Each chapter is eligible to apply for a maximum grant of $1,500 (or $1,000 if only one member is attending) which can be used to offset the expenses of registration, transportation, and lodging. Student chapter officers can apply for a travel grant for their chapter. There is only one grant available per chapter and funds awarded must be divided between attending members. Grants will be awarded on a first come, first served basis and they will go quickly!
If your chapter is awarded a travel grant, you will receive a reimbursement form, which the chapter president or treasurer must return to us with copies of relevant receipts in order to receive the funds. Please note that even if you are awarded a travel grant, you must still register for the event. Attendance at the event is mandatory to receive the grant.
