The scholarship must be used within a one-year period starting from the date of the award notice. The length of study (at least 3 months and no longer than one year) is dependent on the cost-of-living at the host institution, the education level of the applicant (pre- vs post PhD), and the availability of other funds. The length of time and conditions must be specified in the letter from the host institution which accompanies the final application. In the case of a delay more than three months in reference to the submitted plan, another candidate may be chosen. The laboratory where the candidate wishes to work must approve any delay in the commencement of work.

The amount of the Scholarship will be $15,000 U.S. The scholarship holder is encouraged to seek funds in addition to the scholarship.
