                                                          2019 Training Grants

 

The Rotary Club of Damariscotta-Newcastle offers Training Grants to people who live or work in Lincoln County and seek financial help to acquire or upgrade skills to advance in their chosen vocation.  A Grant may be awarded for either:

 

     *   a skills training program that leads to some form of license, certification or degree

                                                                  or

     *   purchase of tools and equipment needed for professional work

 

The Grants can cover up to 90% of the cost of tuition/fees or tools, and are paid to the program upon proof of acceptance to the program, or the submission of receipts for tools.  Other payment arrangements are at the discretion of the Training Grants Committee.  Applicants may be of any age, and diverse vocations are welcome. Applicants must meet any requirements of the desired training program.

 

                                                        Application Procedure

 

You may submit an application for a Training Grant at any time throughout the year, but it should be at least six weeks in advance of the training program’s start date.  We review applications monthly.  To apply, fill out either the Training Grant Application form or the Tools Grant Application form and submit using one of these two options (the first option is preferred but not required).

Those receiving Training or Tool Grants may be invited to a breakfast meeting of our Rotary Club to share their experiences. Attendance is not required to receive a Grant.

 

After participating in a training program of obtaining tools, we will contact you annually for brief follow-ups to help us improve our Grants program to better serve our community.
