The SBSS will reimburse up to 50% of delegate fees to a maximum of $200 per term** (unused amounts do not carry over). Please note that food, beverage, accommodation and transportation expenses incurred while attending a conference are non-reimbursable by the SBSS. No exceptions will be made.
To apply for conference reimbursement, please fill out all fields in the below form.
The deadline to apply for a conference reimbursement is 14 days (2 weeks) after the end date of the conference, at 11:59 PM. No exceptions will be made. Please allow to two weeks for your application to be processed and approved.
Reimbursements are available for conferences that occur during the fall and winter semesters (September to April). Reimbursements are not available for conferences that occur during the summer semester.
Questions or concerns can be directed to Sam Wilson, Finance Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conferences are a great way to discover personal, professional and academic development opportunities as a student. The Sprott Business Students' Society encourages Sprott students to attend opportunities like these, and is pleased to provides a partial reimbursement of your conference delegate fee to help out!*
* Only Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of International Business, and Masters of Accounting students from the Sprott School of Business qualify for any reimbursement from the Sprott Business Students' Society.
** The $200 reimbursement is a maximum amount and is not guaranteed. Some events, for example the John Molson Sports Business Conference, may have a very high attendance, and reimbursing 50% of the delegate fee for all attendees could cause undue financial hardship on the SBSS. In cases such as these, the Vice President Finance will decide upon a maximum total reimbursement for the conference, and this amount will be divided evenly among all conference reimbursement applicants.
