The purpose of these grants is to help defray the costs of the international fellowship internship, not to fully fund the experience. Students are strongly encouraged to begin researching outside sources of funding before submitting a grant application.
A maximum of $6,550 will be available for each fellowship grant. The final amount for each grant will be determined by funds available to GSCD and the budget submitted with each application.
