In addition, fellows who do not reside in the greater Michiana area are provided with subsidized visiting faculty housing located adjacent to the University during their fellowship. Applicants who require additional support beyond the fellowship stipend should seek supplementary funding in the form of external grants or sabbatical and other contributions from their home institutions.

Fellowships include research expenditures of up to $1,000, a private office in the Institute, a computer and printer, access to University libraries and other facilities, and weekly Institute seminars and events.
