Award Benefits

The Whitaker International Fellows and Scholars Program offers a stipend commensurate with the recipient’s experience and expected expenses in the host country. A lot of information is available at

Fellows: The term of the award will be for a maximum of one academic year (as defined by the academic calendar of the host country).

Scholars: The term of the award will be as little as one academic semester, or up to two academic years in length (for post-doctoral research fellowships). Scholar awards generally should require a full academic year, but any length of time proposed should be appropriately justified at the time of application.

Award Benefits Include:

  • Round trip international airfare
  • A monthly living stipend
  • Health & Accident insurance
  • Fellows Only: Tuition allowance up to a maximum amount greater than $15,000 (to be determined by program administrators in late January)

Grantee Meetings

To foster the sharing of information and the development of a community of international fellows and scholars, interaction among recipients is encouraged during their grant tenure, and funding may be made available for such gatherings. Former fellows and scholars may also be invited to periodic conferences in the United States.
