U.S. Air Force Research Lab Summer Faculty Fellowship Program tenure is for a continuous period. Consequently, no breaks for leave, such as vacation, teaching engagements, or conferences are permitted. If the lab advisor deems it necessary for the participant to attend a conference because it is related to the summer fellowship, the advisor must write to firstname.lastname@example.org before the leave is to take place, indicating that the leave is necessary and has been approved by the lab. All such requests will be forwarded to the AFOSR for further approval. U.S. Air Force Research Lab Summer Faculty Fellowship Program participants should not make arrangements to leave the lab before official approval has been granted and has been communicated by Systems Plus. If the leave is approved, participants will not be compensated for their stipend, temporary moving allowance, or travel expenses during their time away from the lab.
