Fencers Club Travel Fund

The FC has initiated a reimbursement Travel Fund for coaches and athletes for the 2022 season in order to aid our coaches and fencers in their efforts to attain their competitive goals. Through the generous contributions of members of our Board the new FC Travel Fund has been created as an independent reimbursement fund distinct from the FC Scholarship Program. Reimbursement from the FC Travel Fund is not dependent on competition results or ranking. Fencers and coaches seeking reimbursement from the FC Travel Fund should submit this form to David Niu within 21 days of the event. Requests will be processed beginning 30 days after the event after reviewing all requests. Applicants for reimbursement from the FC Travel Fund must meet the following eligibility criteria:
