A recipient of a dissertation fellowship may be liable for income taxes on funds awarded, depending on whether the funds are used to pay tuition and certain other related expenses, the amount of the recipient's other income, the law of the recipient's domicile, and other factors.

The foundation will not provide advice on tax matters. Applicants should consult their own tax advisors to determine the tax consequences to them of receiving a dissertation fellowship.
