TRAVEL SUBSIDY POLICY
In 1993 the University established the Travel Subsidy Fund to assist students with expenses related to travel in conjunction
with their studies at NSCAD. The current amount available in this fund is $12,000.00, divided between the Fall, Winter and
Spring/Summer semesters.
APPLICATION CRITERIA
The Travel Subsidy Policy has been established by the Student Affairs Committee to address the needs of students and to
disburse the funds in an equitable and reasonable manner. It should be understood by the University community that this
policy will remain under review and that the criteria of the policy may be changed as such changes become necessary. Any
alterations to previous criteria or procedures will be announced during each application period, and will be stated on

Individual Travel Subsidy – An individual travel subsidy is available to assist a student with travel expenses related to
such things as Off Campus Study, graduate research, attendance at conferences, etc. Please note that only full-time
NSCAD students (not Exchange) may access the travel fund money.
