Upon selection to the MLEF Program, there are several steps you need to complete before you can begin your appointment.
Once ORAU has received the selection notice from MLEF, you will be sent an appointment letter. You must immediately review, sign and return the appointment letter from ORAU, along with the Terms of Appointment and other required forms. These forms are required in order for you to accept the appointment and ensure that you will be eligible to receive a stipend. The appointment letter will include information such as:
Please contact the mentor listed on the Appointment Letter with any questions regarding the research project prior to accepting an appointment. All other questions can be directed to the individual listed on the letter.
You are required to have health insurance in place no later than the first day of your appointment and continue coverage throughout the duration of the program. You may not continue in the MLEF Program if your insurance coverage lapses.
It is your responsibility to ensure ORAU receives the following items before your appointment begins so that stipend payments can begin on time.
