The standard stipend is $60,000. National standard stipends in a few research areas are above that level, and those departments may augment the stipend. Academy Fellows are provided with a one-time $5,000 in a research fund and access to university resources. Fellows who need substantial research infrastructure or supplies will generally work closely with a faculty mentor, who would supply research funding for appropriate projects of mutual interest. Academy Junior Fellows are encouraged to pursue outside funding when appropriate.
