Each participant will receive a $2200 stipend for the Institute. Half of the stipend will be paid on the first day of the Institute. The balance will be paid at its conclusion. Participants are responsible for paying taxes on this stipend.  If a participant is obliged through special circumstances to depart before the end of the institute, a pro rata share of the stipend will be shared or returned. The assigned books will be provided to participants free-of-charge.
