This will be available for the term of the Fellowship. The Host Institute may not apply any administrative costs to this allowance.

The EGL Charitable Foundation will award only one new Fellowship per year to a U.S. Host Institution. 

These grants will be subject to an annual research progress report by the trainee and the mentor, as well as a financial report provided by the appropriate institutional official. A complete financial report for the entire three year period is due upon termination of the fellowship. Any unexpended funds must be returned to The EGL Charitable Foundation. A Fellow must obtain the approval of the review committee before he or she may transfer the grant to another U.S. Host Institution.
