Appointments are for one year, normally renewable for a second year.  Participants receive an annual stipend of $67,000 plus limited reimbursement for health and medical insurance costs (currently $430.00 per month single coverage and $1,013.50 per month family coverage).  Inbound travel and moving expenses are reimbursed according to established policies.
