- Students restricted to 20 hours a week for the unpaid fellowship award (e.g., foreign students, etc.) will work with the program director/dean to make arrangement and account for an extra 5-hour-a-week research constituent that may entail (up to 5 hours per week) scheduled meeting time with the respective program director/dean/elected instructor.
