Welcome to the Arizona State University, Undergraduate Student Government Tempe (USGT) Professional Development Grant page!

The USGT Finance Committee awards funding to undergraduate students enrolled in a degree-granting program on the ASU Tempe campus to assist with their professional and academic development. These funds should not be expected to cover all expenses incurred, but should be considered as a supplement to offset the total cost of travel, conference, and competition fees. The USGT Finance Committee will not give advances for any reason or review applications for travel/events that have already occurred.


If approved and you are not able to use your awarded funds, you MUST notify us so we may reallocate the funds to another student. Failure to do so, may result in future ineligibility.
