The Civil War Trust Regional Teacher Institute: Antietam scholarship
recipients are required to arrange and pay up-front for their own travel
to and from the Regional Teacher Institute.
Scholarship recipients will be reimbursed for their travel after
submitting the appropriate forms and receipts to the Civil War Trust. To
reimbursement, scholarship recipients must attend all sessions of
the Regional Teacher Institute and provide receipts for their travel
expenses or, if driving, their mileage calculation.
Travel costs may not exceed $500, and will not include “luxury”
options. Scholarship recipients should travel as cost-efficiently as
possible. The Trust reserves the right to deny reimbursements for those
travel costs it finds are relatively excessive, including but not
limited to “first class” options or unreasonable travel plans.
Scholarship recipients must book their own room at the Teacher
Institute location. Their room and applicable
room taxes will be fully paid for by the scholarship upon their
departure. In no case will incidentals be paid for through scholarship
If a scholarship recipient cancels, all travel and hotel arrangements
become their responsibility, financially and otherwise, and all
cancelations regarding travel and hotel arrangements must be done by the
scholarship recipient. A reimbursement of expenses for scholarship
recipients who cancel will not be awarded.
If a scholarship recipient needs to cancel, they should contact the
Trust immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-367-1861
x7223, in any case no less than 72 hours prior to the first day of the
Regional Teacher Institute.
