In addition, the applicant must participate in two in-person meetings: one meeting at the Annie E. Casey Foundation in Baltimore in September 2017 and the other at a yet-to-be dertemined date and location.
The Annie E. Casey Foundation will sponsor 20 scholars in 2017. Scholars are expected to commit a minimum of $500 to travel costs for in-person meetings; the Foundation will cover all other expenses.
