Instructors attending any portion of the Instructor Certification Program, including the workshops, pre-certification, and testing, can use individual grants through this Fund.  Individual grants are awarded twice per year and the next deadline for applications is February 1, 2016.

Additionally, grants of up to $1,000 are available to GMOs that are organizing an instructor education event.  The funds can be used to offset some of the expenses involved in conducting a USDF Instructor Certification Program, or to organize a general educational event for area instructors.  These applications must be received at least 90 days prior to the event.
