Dale Fellowship: Recipient Requirements
The Dale Fellowship project may involve travel, either in the United States or abroad. The winner is required to submit a travel waiver in accordance with the travel rules regarding University funds. Travel should not be to destinations listed on the State Department’s Travel Advisory. It should neither involve extended study in a formal program at an American or foreign university nor should it normally entail participation in a structured program sponsored by a public or private institution. Rather, the emphasis should be on a special, independent initiative of the recipient’s own devising.
Upon acceptance of the Dale Fellowship, the recipient will be expected to sign a statement promising to use the funds for the express purpose outlined in the proposal. The Dale Fellow is required to make a progress report halfway through the fellowship year; at the completion of the project, the fellow must submit a written account of his or her experience and an accounting of the use of the Dale funds. The fellow is also asked to participate in a banquet on the University campus in October of the year following the fellowship, at which recipients of the previous summer’s Dale Sophomore Awards are honored.
