Pace University’s New York City Model UN program is planning to help cover the costs of between seven and 15 students (depending on final budget approval, the number of eligible applicants and costs of flights) who wish to attend the Scotland Model United Nations (SCOTMUN) conference,  hosted by the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, 1-7 March 2017.

Pace MUN students will travel together and stay together, along with the MUN faculty advisor, Dr. Matthew Bolton. However, they may participate in their own delegations, not necessarily alongside other Pace students.

Pending final approval from the administration, Pace University will cover much of the cost of participation, including conference fees, flights and internal transportation and housing. However, participants accepted to go on the trip will need to make a contribution of around $400-500 (exact amount to be determined), plus any passport, visa, medical or vaccination costs you need to be able to travel and your own food and entertainment costs.

To take advantage of this opportunity, you will need to go through an application process. Please fill out an application form (available here) and submit it through the Pace Education Abroad portal (click here) by 19 December 2016 at midnight at the latest (late will not be accepted). In the portal you will also be able to sign the additional release and informational forms. You should be able to log on, using your Pace username and password and will find the documents there that you will need to submit.
