- Any CHART member in good standing may complete the application to nominate a hospitality trainer or operator for the grant.

- Candidates must be non-member, junior or associate level trainers or operations team members who have never attended a CHART conference.

- The grant will cover the candidate's conference fee ($1,025), three night hotel stay (approximately $500), airfare (maximum $400), and a stipend to cover some other expenses ($100).

- Grant funds will be administrated and arranged by the CHART office, including the stipend, which the recipient will receive upon arrival at the conference.

- Costs above the amount of the CHART grant are the responsibility of the recipient.

- Following the conference, recipients will be required to write a short article for the FlipCHART newsletter covering the highlights of their experience.

- The grant is non-transferable.
