All the key players are back, and so we are proceeding as we had
planned. We are having a meeting at the end of this month and I hope
that will result in consensus about the delivery model. So we are
close. The Center directors will know how this will work as soon as
we do. They are (gratefully, I'm sure) exempt from the planning
process, which is fully internal and complex from many standpoints.
So, I will say what I always say-- stay tuned!

As for the chat, grad students weren't invited because this chat is
regarding an entirely different scholarship program; the money is
from a different funding source, has different applications,
different tax implications, and different criteria for eligibility.
Anyone with access to HARVie, our intranet, is welcome to join the
chat, but virtually none of the information will be relevant to
graduate students.

I hope this answers your questions for now--and please bear with us
while we move out of the holding pattern into what I hope will be a
smooth landing!

Best regards,
