FREML believes strongly in professional training and the support of those seeking to develop their skills in fund development. Professional development funds are available annually based on the guidelines listed. Awards not to exceed $500 will be considered for all or a portion of the registration fees of the professional development course or conference selected. Additional expenses such as travel, lodging and meals, or registration in excess of the amount awarded, must be provided from other sources, i.e. by the applicant or applicant's employer. Funds awarded will be distributed by FREML directly to the training institution, to be applied toward the registration fee.
Applications are accepted throughout the year and will be reviewed by the Executive Committee at the next monthly meeting.
The Executive Committee will review applications in an independent, objective manner and make recommendations for awards (not to exceed $500 and based on available funds)
