How It Works

SAMI funding is contingent on the approval of the SAMI Committee. The Committee is comprised of individuals from across campus with a commitment to student development and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Both an application and endorsement must be submitted. Endorsements from faculty are preferred but staff members are also acceptable. Graduate, GSI’s and other undergraduate students are not eligible to endorse applicants.
