The Action MC defines the financial contribution in the form of a Trainee Grant for all trainees who will be attending the approved Training School. Trainee Grants do not necessarily cover all expenses related to attending the Training School. The Trainee Grant is a contribution to the overall travel, accommodation and meal expenses of the Grantee. Different Grants amount can be attributed to each trainee.
