The type, number and size of ALLUNY grants are determined annually by the ALLUNY Executive Board.

In the event there are no applicants for a designated grant, the unused, allocated funds will return to the general treasury at the end of each budget year.

All applications should be submitted at least two months prior to the registration deadline for the designated meeting, though deadlines may be flexible if necessary. Incomplete applications and those submitted after the deadline will be ineligible for consideration.

Members of the Grants & Scholarships Committee will be responsible for awarding all monies. These members, as well as incumbent officers and board members, are ineligible to receive awards during their tenure.

Grants are non-transferable.

All funds must be used for the designated meeting. If for any reason a grant cannot be spent as stipulated, or funds subsequently become available from your employer, the grant (or the unused portion thereof) will be returned to the Treasurer of ALLUNY.
