TCKs who were raised on the field may return to visit the parents overseas using fellowship funds one time after high school and before the end of their 22 nd year provided: (1) their parents are still on the field, and (2) they have not previously visited their parents using fellowship funds. Approved trips are covered by the TCK Travel Fund, which is funded by a monthly standard transfer of $10 from every member’s account. All TCK travel is accumulated to taxable income for the parent; however, expenses are not covered for non-TCK spouses.
