You will receive the stipend on the last day of the workshop minus the costs of several pre-paid meals, tour fees, and the cost of your hotel room. The amount of the deduction will be posted by January, 2017. This means you will have to pre-pay only for your travel to the workshop. If you miss any portion of the required workshop presentations or activities for any reason – including health, family issues or delayed flights – there will be a pro rata deduction from your stipend. An hour begins after 15 minutes of being tardy.
