After travel: Under guidance of the faculty sponsor, the student must prepare a 1-2 page statement no more than 30 days after the travel or research award period, explaining how the original goals were met during the travel period; failure to complete this step will result in the loss of future eligibility for this award or any other Waring Funds.
