The application period for travel funding is now CLOSED. Funding was issued on a first-come, first-served basis. We hope to see you at the Dialogue!
Food Recovery Network is thrilled to be able to offer travel stipends and scholarships to all students working with FRN chapters on their campuses, thanks to Chartwells Higher Education and Sodexo.
Applications will be approved on a rolling basis between January 20 and March 6, 2016 or until all funding has been awarded.
All funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be awarded based on (in no particular order) need, distance to be traveled and chapter standing/merit. Students involved in unofficial and official chapters are eligible to apply for and receive funding. Please be sure to coordinate with your FRNds; only submit one application for funding per chapter.
Three types of funding are available. FRN National will decide which funding you/your chapter will receive based on the above criteria.
