Team Grant Orientation Sessions

The Grants & Recognitions Department will provide four (4) Team Grant Orientation Workshops. All Team Captains MUST attend one of the four TEAM Grant Orientation Workshops to be eligible to apply for these funds. Additional team members are strongly encouraged to attend.
