Those wishing to receive a travel grant through GLSSA are required to attend 2 open GLSSA meetings and 1 Student Government Association (SGA) meeting as a means of participation. Once those requirements have been met and you receive a travel grant, please contact the program assistant Rachel Gentry (gentryrc@uncw.edu) to make sure that your expenses meet the requirements of the grant.

Finally, many of the current GLSSA officers will be graduating this semester and we require fresh blood to fill multiple leadership positions.
