IAS awardees are required to submit brief progress reports about their projects. These reports are due approximately one year after the date of the award; the exact date is listed in the award letter. A final report is due in the second year after the award. Since many outcomes such as publications may not be complete within the first year, these reports help us to more fully evaluate the impact of these awards. Final reports use the same form as the progress report.
