EDUCATIONAL ADVISORY BOARD

The Foundation holds in confidence the names of its advisers, but from the beginning it has published a small fraction of them as the Educational Advisory Board (EAB). Its members, all of whom are former Fellows, are appointed to renewable four-year terms. These terms are staggered, so that each year the terms of about a fourth of the board expire. The Committee of Selection, which determines which applicants’ names will be forwarded to the Board of Trustees for final approval, is comprised of EAB members.
