Leadership Conference Sponsor Application

The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) supports the logistical planning and partial funding for transportation, conference registration fees, and lodging for select students (regardless of your ethnic/cultural background) who would like to attend a multicultural leadership conference.

Conference attendees will be responsible for raising additional funds to cover the remaining costs of the conference. Depending on the conference, fees can range from $100 - $600 per student. Some sources of funding that students can pursue include, but are not limited to the Office of International Education, Academic Skills Center, Jewel Glenn Fund, Common Ground, Bonner Center for Civic Engagement, and either Richmond or Westhampton College.

Office staff will send out an email to the student(s) selected to attend the conference. OMA may request that the student ambassadors selected to atteend the conference submit a refundable deposit to confirm their commitment. All participants are required to submit a blog regarding their experience upon their return from the conference.

Please contact Chantelle Bernard if you have any questions or would like more information regarding potential funding sources across campus.
