The primary requirement for the sabbatical leave is that the majority of it be spent in time away from work. This may take the form of pleasure travel, pursuit of an avocational interest, time spent at home or with one’s family. The leave can combine more than one element or location, but candidates should take care not to overschedule their sabbatical time.
The other requirements for the sabbatical leave are that it involves a minimum of three consecutive months, that it begin within one year of the award notification date, and that awardees send a brief written report on the sabbatical to the Foundation within three months of completion. Sabbatical award recipients are expected to take part in a peer network with other alumni that meets semi-annually.
