Officers who have been awarded a fellowship in the past may apply again. In such cases, the officer should indicate the receipt of the previous grant and how it was employed, including any publication (or degree thesis) to which it contributed.

Additional materials that will assist the committee in evaluating the application may also be submitted: letters of recommendation and writing samples (of no more than chapter or article length) are especially recommended.
