If I am offered the fellowship, may I defer for a year or delay the start date?
No postponements or deferrals are permitted. Year 1 of the fellowship must be taken up no later than the fall immediately following the postdoctoral fellowship offer. Both Year 1 and Year 2 must be completed within the three-year window.
