2022 ROMBA Conference - James Robertson Student Access Fund Application

Thanks to the generous support of individual and corporate donors, the James Robertson Student Access Fund enables LGBTQ+ students to attend Reaching Out events, helping them grow as leaders. We invite students to apply for funds when covering the cost of travel would provide a financial burden. We ask that students capable of personally covering travel costs and those that receive funding from their school or LGBTQ+ Club reconsider applying. This allows us to provide funding to more students that otherwise would not be able to participate.

If you have not yet approached your school and/or LGBTQ+ Club about financial support, we will be more than happy to provide the necessary information for you to do so. If, after accessing different forms of funds and reflecting on your personal financial capacity, you find yourself in need of additional assistance, please complete the application below. 

Funds will be used to offset expenses including lodging and transportation. Approved students will receive either a reimbursement (up to $500 USD) or a complimentary 2-night stay valued at $518 USD+tax (October 6-8) at our host hotel, the Washington Hilton, and may indicate their preference in the application below. Funding per student is limited to one event per calendar year, so if you have previously received funding from the Student Access Fund in 2022, you are ineligible to receive funding for the ROMBA Conference.

Staff will review and accept applications on a rolling basis through September 6th. For any questions, please email
