Up to two years of support for postgraduate degree programmes at Penn. The award covers tuition fees, health insurance and provides a monthly stipend which covers living costs, and such extras as entertainment and travel. The value of the award is adjusted annually, with the current annual stipend for U.K. Thourons set at $44,520. The Thouron Award is sufficiently generous to allow for vacation travel. Students are expected to use much of their vacation times to explore their host country.
