Market Day for Outside Vendors
Every month, Student Development and Campus Vibrancy welcomes outside vendors to our campus.
Since only Stetson registered student organizations, departments, and offices are allowed to table and advertise on campus, Market Day provides a unique opportunity for outside vendors to connect with Stetson University's vast community of students, faculty and staff. By donating $35 to our Student Conference Grant, local buisnesses and organizations have the opportunity to showcase their products and services on campus.
Join us in supporting local businesses and our students!

The Office of Student Development and Campus Vibrancy is proud to sponsor the Market Day Grant, which allows Stetson University student organizations the opportunity to send members to local or national leadership conferences. The grant is funded by the fees collected from outside merchants who participate in Market Day at Stetson University. Not only does this help our students develop as leaders, but it also provides an opportunity for partnership between the university and local vendors.
How is the Student Conference Grant Used?
A panel of faculty and students will choose the recipients of the grant money, which will be used to cover any transportation, lodging, conference fees and possible food voucher costs. Each grant awarded, and the amount that will be covered, will be determined on an individual basis depending on the conference type, distance and funding. Student organizations may apply to receive grant money during the fall and spring semesters.
How to Apply
Student organizations and clubs are urged to take advantage of this opportunity and fill out a Student Conference Grant form. Contact Student Development and Campus Vibrancy at email@example.com for more information!
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I am trying to use Market Day for a non-profit organziation?
It is possible to have your $35 fee waived if you are a non-profit or charitable organziation. Groups like the Girl Scouts fall under this category. This is done on a case-by-case basis. If your group qualifies for this fee waiver, you must provide your own table.
