Answers to typical questions
Periods of extended stay
It is possible for scholars to extend their stay if:
- it does not inversely impact their travel visa process or otherwise put at risk the likelihood of them attending SotM;
- it does not increase costs to OSMF (e.g. the flight home must be a similar or cheaper price, or the difference covered by the scholar); and
- the extended stay is not too extravagant, thereby bringing in to question whether the applicant even needed a scholarship in the first place.
Travel must be a round trip from/to the same location. An alternate return airport is permit-able only if in close proximity to the original (e.g. the next nearest international airport) and is for the purpose of easing travel arrangements only.
