In order to ensure that we have the commitment of the Fellows selected, we ask that you pay us a deposit fee of $250. Only selected Fellows who accept our offer will be asked to pay the deposit fee by April 15. This deposit will be refunded to you upon actual travel. Once the deposit fee is paid, the deposit fee becomes non-refundable if you are unable or unwilling to travel. Also in this case, we will also offer the fellowship to the next person on the waiting list.
