The Crew Course and Travel Fund will cover up to a maximum 80% of total eligible expenses to a maximum of $1,000.00 in Canada and maximum of $1,250 for eligible expenses for outside of Canada. FTM will reimburse the participant once the workshop or course has been completed and all required evaluations and receipts have been submitted.

The workshop or course must take place between April 18, 2016 and January 27, 2017.
