  • They are given office space and computer access in a suite dedicated to the program. The program will assist fellows in finding appropriate furnished housing through the University Housing Office and private landlords.
  • While secretarial assistance is not provided, the PIIRS staff may assist with directing fellows to relevant offices and campus services.

  • The Fung Global Fellows program will pay transportation costs for each fellow, and his or her spouse or domestic partner and for their child/children, with the following limitations: It will pay for the most economical means of transportation for one round-trip for the fellow, spouse or partner, and children from and to his or her home institution.
  • Travel funds for a spouse or partner and children are restricted to persons accompanying a fellow for a substantial period of time, that is, at least two months. These funds are not intended for dependents taking brief holidays in or outside the United States.
