Fellows are expected to be in residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies and work full-time on their fellowship projects. Fellows may not hold any other fellowships, or be otherwise employed during the fellowship period without the express permission of program staff. Additional fellowships or work opportunities that coincide with the fellowship period must be brought to the attention of program staff. Failure to do so may result in the revocation of the fellowship.
Given their full-time residential character, Reagan-Fascell fellowships are not designed to support extensive fieldwork outside the Washington, D.C., area. The program recognizes the importance of establishing ties with counterparts elsewhere in the United States and abroad and understands that professional obligations may sometimes necessitate domestic or international travel. Limited funds may be available to support fellows’ professional travel within the United States. At the same time, fellows are expected to be in residence at the Forum for the bulk of the fellowship period, in order to take full advantage of the professional resources available at the Endowment and in the nation’s capital.
