AFSA Goes for Gold



The AFSA Goes for Gold Conference Subsidy Program was designed to give students the opportunity to expand their network and business knowledge by participating in competition and conferences across the nation.

Students must apply to the program on an individual basis. Candidates that are chosen to be a part of this program will be matched as best as possible to their conference preferences that have been noted in their application. The number of applicants that will be chosen for each conference will vary depending on the amount of interest.

Coordination of teams will be based on the preferences of successful applicants and determined by AFSA Goes for Gold program organizers. Once teams have been formed, practices may be set up in order to provide delegates with information about the conference and tips on how to perform well in a case competition

AFSA will subsidize 80% of students’ costs, provided they have not refunded the AFSA fee. The costs that will be covered by this program include travel arrangements and delegate fees charged by external conference organizers. The expected costs of each conference are currently posted in our AFSA Goes for Gold Conference Bank, but are subject to change and will be finalized by November 2018.

The application is simple…

  • Be an SAF student!

  • Be willing to compete in a few unique competencies!

  • Demonstrate the willingness to learn from the experience!

  • Demonstrate the ability to represent your school the right way!

  • Demonstrate the willingness to devote preparation time with your team!
