    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Guide to applying for SAPD Funds

I did not know about the CSS Student Academic Professional Development(SAPD) Fund program until last week when I met with one of my CIS professors to talk about an independent study project that I am doing. Somehow, during the discussion, I mentioned a conference I was interested in attending and how I did not have enough funds to travel to the location and participate in the conference. It was then that I learned about St. Scholastica’s SAPD Fund program which students can request to obtain funds that can cover¬†presenting at a professional conference, attending leadership training sessions, visiting an exhibit related to major, or a significant performance opportunity, etc.

However, the application process is quite the process as one has to complete the application, contact their department chair who, if they support the reason for request, forward the application to the Dean, who proceeds to forward to the VP for Academic Affairs! That’s as far as I have gone through the application process and some departments may require other materials.

If you are a CSS student, this Fund is a great resource that you can use to explore academic and/or professional activities and opportunities outside class.
