Swerve Robotics believes that personal finance issues should not prevent students from participating in our programs, so we have established policies to make sure that all students have access to the program. If your family cannot afford these programs, please contact our staff and we can discuss options.

Travel costs

It is estimated that it will be $2,000* for all travel in 2017-18. There are three options for paying for the travel:

  1. One time payment to Swerve of $2,000 per person will be held in trust with Swerve Robotics. These funds will only be used to pay for travel of the designated student/parent.
  2. Monthly payments of the amount in which the payee chooses will be held in trust with Swerve Robotics. These funds will only be used to pay for travel of the designated student/parent.
  3. Payment of travel amount immediately prior to the time of the travel planning/booking.

At the end of the year the individual has the option to have the unused funds dispersed back to them or have them donated to the club. The donated funds will be transferred from the fund to the general fund in the miscellaneous donation budget line item.

Funds may be entered into the student/parent travel fund by any individual. The check shall be made out to Swerve Robotics Inc. and shall have the students name and team number on the memo line.
