2018-19 UR Campus Nomination Timeline

Please be advised that before we nominate you or endorse your candidacy for a fellowship competition, we will perform a conduct and academic honesty check to confirm that you are in good disciplinary and academic standing. This applies to each person listed as a project participant.

NB: For all projects being proposed in a location outside of the United States, students must familiarize themselves with and use the resources for student travelers available through the UR Office for Global EngagementNo project will be considered for nomination to a location deemed too risky according to the professional security standards to which the University adheres. Projects proposed to countries or regions with a U.S. Department of State Level 3 (or higher) Travel Advisory will undergo additional scrutiny and may need to be approved by an internal UR travel review committee.Students in this situation should contact Alan Ryon, Manager for International Travel and Security, in the Office for Global Engagement, to discuss their international project plans and measures necessary to mitigate safety and security concerns. For students whose projects are nominated by UR, changes in the safety and security situation of the proposed location may require alterations to the original project.

Countries under current U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory levels 3 "Reconsider travel" and levels 4 "Do not travel", or regions, provinces, and cities that contain the language "Reconsider travel" or "Do not travel" within the narrative of any 1-4 advisory. Locations under Centers for Disease Control Warnings (level 3) are also considered high-risk.UR may apply the designation "High-Risk" to locations that pose a specific health, safety, or security concern as indicated by other sources, such as our insurers or travel providers.

Fall semester: Individually or as a group, develop project plans, secure organizational affiliation(s), and request letter(s) of support; students should reach out to those who will supply letters of support well in advance of the January deadline.
