A recipient must begin travel no later than twelve months from the date of selection for the fellowship. A graduating senior must begin travel within six months of receiving his or her undergraduate degree. The awards are for support of an individual student, traveling either independently or as part of a group, and are intended to support travel for at least six weeks.
Any use of the funds for purposes other than those described in the application for fellowship, or any substantive failure to complete the travel and itinerary as proposed in the application, will require a full or partial repayment of the moneys advanced to the student (the amount of repayment to be determined by the selection committee).
The recipient is expected to:
- Confirm final travel plans and itinerary before commencing travel.
- Send monthly status reports on the trip itself during the course of travel.
- Provide a final summary of the experience, hardcopy receipts, and verification that the itinerary and activities proposed were followed at the conclusion of travel.
