From transportation to accommodations, travelling to a FIRST events to volunteer or mentor a FRC team can be quite expensive. That’s why we’re very excited to offer Carleton students some financial relief and officially open applications for our Volunteer & Mentor Travel Grants!
Applications will be accepted from Wednesday January 30th to Wednesday February 27th, 2019 at 11:59PM. Applicants will then be required to submit receipts/proof of payment for their expenses after each event to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Grants will be issued based on financial need, reimbursing up to 50% of the expenses submitted.
The CU FIRST Executive will review receipts and approve individual grants. The deadline to submit receipts/proof of payments will be Wednesday April 17th, 2019, after the Ontario Provincial Championship. Grants will be distributed to selected applicants via E-Transfer in Late-April.
