SARE Travel

Southern SARE provides travel reimbursement for members of SARE and for individuals who attend conferences, workshops and other events as SARE scholarship recipients.

To receive reimbursement for SARE travel-related expenses in a timely fashion, read and follow the guidelines to ensure all requirements are met before submitting travel expense reimbursement. Any missing documentation may result in a delay in processing travel reimbursement. All travel expenditures must be filed within 20 days of the completion of the travel event.

Individuals requesting travel scholarships attendance to an event to gain knowledge/skill for personal use should contact the SSARE State Ag Coordinator in their state. Travel scholarship requests $2,999 and lower may be approved by SSARE administrative staff and must be received at least 30 days prior to the event for which funds are being requested. Requests $3,000 and over require the approval of the SSARE Administrative Council or Executive Council and must be received at least 45 days prior to the event for which funds are being requested.

The State of Georgia has mandatory statewide contracts with specified car rental suppliers for travel within the Continental U.S. UGA requires renting vehicles from these providers when renting a vehicle is the preferred or most advantageous mode of transportation. For more information, visit UGA's website.

NOTE: Per University of Georgia policy, only hotels/motels are allowable lodging establishments for reimbursement. Businesses, such as Airbnb, Vrbo, HomeAway, condos/townhomes, or similar vacation rentals are not allowable lodging services. All travelers need to be aware of this State of Georgia policy and that neither UGA nor USG has the authority to grant exceptions. For UGA to reimburse lodging expenses, travelers must stay at a hotel or motel. For travel reimbursement purposes, all 50 U.S. states are considered domestic travel. The 16 U.S. territories and commonwealths, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, are also considered domestic travel.

International travel is not allowed.
