During their two-year appointments, CLIR/DLF Postdoctoral Fellows in Data Curation receive $3,000 annual stipends for elective professional development expenses. The stipend is in addition to the reimbursement benefits for expenses related to attending required program meetings. All benefits are contingent upon each fellow’s continued employment at their host institution under the terms of their fellowship employment contract or appointment letter.

Fellows must sign an agreement acknowledging proper use of these funds before they can receive the stipend. Stipends will be sent directly to Fellows on or around September 1 each year.
