Financial Assistance for CIT Training

The National Association for Interpretation will conduct a “Train the Trainers” workshop on August 22-26, 2011  at Powder Valley Nature Center in Kirkwood, Missouri.  This workshop is the first step in becoming a Certified Interpretive Trainer (CIT).  Thanks to generous donors and funding from members of AMI, financial assistance is available for the workshop fee (travel and lodging costs are not covered).  These stipends are open to any AMI member demonstrating need. Two levels of stipends are available: 1) 100% of the workshop fee or 2) 50% of the workshop registration fee.  There will be a one 100% stipend and two 50% stipends.  If you receive the 50% stipend, you (or your organization) are responsible for paying the remaining 50% fee. Selections will be made by a board committee, and all applications will remain confidential.  Priority will be based on need, along with service to NAI and the profession, as well as following application instructions.  More information is included in the application, which can be downloaded here as a Microsoft Word Document or an Adobe PDF file.   Deadline is July 1.
