Please note that you must be a UTGSU Member at the time of application for your application to be deemed eligible. Applications will only be accepted for conferences yet to be attended, not for conferences already attended. Also, if you have already received a UTGSU Conference Bursary during the Fall Cycle of this Fiscal Year (September 1 to August 31), then you are not eligible to apply for the Spring Cycle. Also, lost cheques are not able to be replaced by the UTGSU.
