Travel Scholarship (25%)

Description

The Travel Scholarship is a partial tuition award available to Level I and II participants who have no option but to incur exorbitant travel and lodging expenses in order to attend the nearest SPI Training.

Purpose

The Travel Scholarship serves to provide Level I and II participants, who would otherwise be unable to afford the cost of tuition due to travel and lodging expenses, with a more financially viable way to attend the nearest SPI Training.

Scholarship Amount

Qualified candidates who successfully complete the Travel Scholarship Application and the application to attend (and are accepted) are eligible to receive an award equal to 25% of total tuition for a Level I or Level II Training. Scholarship is awarded as a discount off total tuition.

Preconditions

Eligible candidates must meet at least one of the following minimum requirements for each scheduled Training module:

  • Funds are limited per Training
  • SPI reserves the right to determine which candidates are eligible to receive scholarship funds
  • If allotted funds are exhausted for any particular Training, no additional funds can be made available
