education. The Fellow will have access to all of CAL's staff,
databases, and resource collections, as well as the library at
Georgetown University.

submit a proposal for a paper representing the research conducted at
CAL. The Fellow and his or her CAL mentor will agree on a date for
submission of the final paper.
