About the travel fund
To help make An Unholy Harvest accessible to people from a range of income levels, we set up a scholarship program in 2008. In 2011, we added a travel fund to help Canadian participants living in and traveling from outside the Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto corridor.*

Travel fund scholarships for An Unholy Harvest cover up to 50% of travel costs. The number and amount of the awards are based on availability of funds.
We function at least partly on an honour system. W; we expect that applicants will make every effort to travel by the least expensive means possible and to share travel costs (for example, ridesharing) if at all possible, with the understanding that cost-reduction efforts on your part will help us distribute funds to as many people as possible who need assistance. With this in mind, we will compensate award recipients for up to 50% of an economy-class flight, train or bus ticket, or up to 50% of gas money should the applicant be driving.
Travel fund awards will be paid out to confirmed award recipients upon submission of gas or ticket receipts in person to the organizers (Jacqueline, Love Monkey, or The Courier) on Harvest weekend (copies are acceptable). It is the recipient’s responsibility to contact us by e-mail at unholyharvest at yahoo dot ca to make arrangements to meet with one of us during Harvest weekend.
* If you live within the Montreal/Ottawa/Toronto corridor and are looking to make affordable travel arrangements, we encourage you to register for the event and arrange a rideshare with a fellow attendee from your city. The bulk of our participants come from these three cities and many of them are able to offer a rideshare in return for shared gas costs. Alternately, megabus.com and greyhound.ca offer inexpensive bus tickets, VIA Rail regularly offers half- price discounts on tickets and cheaper prices on Tuesdays, and inexpensive flights are often available via Air Canada and Porter Airlines.
