Grants & Funding – Directors

General Information

  • The grant was created to increase the number of applicants for BCSRT board of director positions. The grant helps to recognize changes to directors paid work schedule, missed opportunities to apply or receive BCSRT grants and prizes, plus thanking them for all the volunteer days and hours they donate. During their term on the BCSRT board of directors, the directors are not eligible for BCSRT grants or prizes.
  • With the introduction of this grant, we are removing the $1,000 grant for BCSRT members who have done significant volunteer work for the BCSRT within 5 years of application deadline. Aside from BCSRT board of directors, determining who volunteered a significant amount of their time was difficult.
  • The total financial amount to be awarded in grants will be reviewed on an annual basis by the BCSRT board of directors.
  • The amount awarded will not exceed the member’s estimated expenses to attend the educational event. IF the event is not attended or completed by the recipient, the total grant must be repaid in full to the BCSRT.
