How will I know I’ve won?
You will be contacted by Dow Jones.
If the selected Fellow declines the fellowship or fails to accept it within 5 days of first attempted notification, whether notification is by e-mail, regular mail or telephone, or, if after reasonable attempts are made, notification is unsuccessful, the fellowship will be awarded to another finalist.
I need a visa to enter the U.S. Who handles this?
[Information to come]
Are there any strings attached?
Dow Jones may ask the candidates to sign a Liability and Publicity Release. In brief, this allows Dow Jones to use the candidate’s name and likeness to publicise the Fellowship, and indemnifies the company against any liabilities arising from the candidate’s taking up the fellowship. The full fine print is here.
Can I transfer the fellowship to someone else if I’m not able to use it?
No. The fellowship is not transferable.
