Description

The fellowships may be renewed for a second year by the trustees upon review of evidence of progress by the fellow in the course of study for which the fellowship was granted.

The award winner will be announced by May 1 of each year. The amount of each fellowship may be $6,000. However, should an applicant have other support, the Steinman award will be reduced by:
