The Whitaker Awards will offer a stipend commensurate with the recipient’s experience and expected expenses in the host country.
The term of the Fellow and Scholar awards will be for a maximum of one academic year (as defined by the academic calendar of the host country), or as little as one academic semester for Scholars. Please note that the preference for Scholar applicants is for projects that require a full academic year.
Award Benefits Include:
- Round trip international airfare
- A monthly living stipend
- Health & Accident insurance
- Tuition allowance up to a maximum $15,000 (if applicable)
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.
