Vocational studies and courses

Vocational courses, general studies for credits, conferences connected with the applicant’s job are examples of what falls under the vocational grants. 

Leisure courses

Courses which have a defined beginning, end and instructor fall under leisure grants. Only grants for courses held domestically can be applied for.

Travel grants

When a member must travel more than 50 km to get from his/her home to the educational institute, he/she can apply for a travel grant. It is not possible to apply for a travel grant alone.
