What is the Tibbie Leslie Travel Grant?
The Tibbie Leslie Travel Grant provides awards of up to $2,000 each for travel outside the continental United States. The grants will be awarded for foreign travel to broaden the applicant's knowledge, experience and understanding in their particular field of interest. In the event available funds are not expended, larger grants may be awarded.
