Seems about right. Priority should go to first time attendees.
Hmmm maybe but I'm not so sure about that. Please defend.
It is our official policy based on the funding guidance from our AF colleagues that priority goes to first time attendees. In the past we have had limited funding available for 2+ attendees, but the OP is correct that we have had a high demand for this outstanding program so far this year. 2+ applicants should not count on receiving funding. Which is what we are telling them. If we have it, we will distribute it. But it is unlikely that we will have a significant amount left over after servicing the first time attendees.
