Animation Guild Announces Member Grants For Animation & CG Training

For the 2012-2013 grant year, the Contract Services Administration Training Trust Fund (CSATTF) has approved reimbursement grants for qualified members of the Animation Guild to take classes at four of the best schools for animation and CG training.

The grants will reimburse for two-thirds of the cost of classes taken at the following schools:

The grants are for classes that begin between February 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013. The grant application forms are available at the links above. To qualify, you must have worked at least thirty days under the Guild’s jurisdiction in the two years previous to the date the class begins.

You must apply for and be accepted for the grant before the class begins, and no more than ninety days in advance. (In other words, if you are approved and subsequently postpone taking the class, you will have to re-apply.)

You will have to submit copies of paystubs and/or a letter from your current or past employers to CSATTF to prove your thirty days’ employment. This is a reimbursement grant, so you will have to pay the class fee in full in advance.

Upon completing the class after grant approval, you will apply to the CSATTF to receive two-thirds reimbursement.
