Mentoring and Professional Development Program
for Folklife and the Traditional Arts
Implementation and Reporting
You and your mentor or exchange partner carry out the project as described in your application. Consultancies and exchanges should begin within three months after they have been approved.
Mentor and client each submit a brief report on the consultancy,
including receipts for reimbursable travel expenses. The reports should
detail the assistance received and how it was or was not beneficial. Detail
any long-term plans or strategies developed as part of the technical
assistance. Be specific.
Download report forms from this site as PDF forms (to be completed, mailed or faxxed to NYFS):

If you prefer, you can download report forms as Microsoft Word documents that can be completed, saved and attached to e-mail to NYFS:

Upon receipt of both reports, NYFS will pay the mentor’s fee and
reimburse travel expenses.
Approximately six months after the consultancy, we will contact the client
by phone or in person to discuss the long-term impact of the consultancy.
