  • The awardee will present the results of his/her experience at a workshop at the Wilson Center. The award workshop will take place in early December 2016. The Center plans to publish the proceedings.
  • The awardee will receive a stipend to cover travel, housing and living expenses, as well as local travel and book allowance.
