What if your plans change?

We know that in rare instances a grant recipient may have to adjust their travel plans. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Your program deposit is non-refundable and is used to cover our costs if you have to cancel your program or transfer to another.
  • If you cancel your enrollment in the program, the Caregiver Grant becomes void.
  • If Road Scholar cancels your program, the Caregiver Grant can be transferred to another program without fees.
  • If after enrollment you decide to transfer to another eligible program, the Caregiver Grant may be transferred along with the enrollment.
  • Your Caregiver Grant can’t be transferred to another person.

 

Is there anything the Caregiver Grant doesn’t cover?

The Caregiver Grant is applied to the cost of the program only.
It does not cover …

  • The cost of transportation to and from the program.
  • Any additional material costs or expenses.

 

What are you expected to do when you return from your program?

When you get back from your adventure, we ask that you do a few things for us.

  • Complete an evaluation after the program.
  • Write a thank-you letter to the donor(s) who funded your Caregiver Grant.
  • Post an online review, photos and a blog. We can help you with this if you need.
