Policy Regarding Outside Funding
Outside funding is used to reduce the minimum student summer work contribution. If the student can document travel costs that exceed the standard allowance, outside funding may be used to cover the documented travel costs. If the outside funding exceeds those two components, the excess will be used to reduce grants awarded to the student.

Policy on Health Insurance
Health insurance is not included in the standard student expense budget. If the student cannot waive out of the Caltech Student Health Insurance Plan then they will receive an Institute Grant to cover their enrollment. The plan costs $2,726 for the 2019-2020 school year.

Policy on Travel Allowance
Institute scholarship will only cover the standard travel allowance listed in the student's estimated cost of attendance.

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award

Other Details
