The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation is committed to the privacy of its Fellows and friends. Visitors to this website who choose to apply for fellowships or other programs administered by Woodrow Wilson may be asked for their mailing addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, Social Security Numbers, and other contact information. These data are used to create database records for fellowship competitions and Fellows’ information, and, on occasion, to describe (without personal attribution) the nature and breadth of applicant pools for given fellowship competitions.
In addition, individuals who choose to make financial contributions to the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation may voluntarily enter credit card numbers and related information on this Web site. Records of individuals who become Fellows or who voluntarily provide information on this Web site may be retained at the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation for purposes of business correspondence.
- Any page on this Web site that requires entry of personal information is a secure page that employs advanced encryption technology.
- Woodrow Wilson does not sell, share, or provide lists of Fellows or fellowship applicants, or any portion of such lists or the information they contain, to third parties or external agencies for purposes other than those of Foundation business, and it prohibits internal use of such information for purposes other than those described herein.
- From time to time the Foundation may supply its lists to subcontractors for the purposes of publishing Fellowship directories; Fellows may opt out. The Foundation may also occasionally engage an external agency to contact a limited number of Fellows for surveys, fundraising, and other related purposes. The Foundation only engages external agencies that agree not to sell or share any information they have collected or been provided.
On occasion, if a third party seeks to contact a Fellow through the Foundation, the Foundation may alert the Fellow and, if the Fellow so instructs, facilitate the contact. In instances where a third party seeks biographical information about a Fellow in support of a scholarly or commercial project, the Fellow or his/her estate will be consulted for permission up to fifty years after the date of the Fellow’s first application to the Foundation. After fifty years, biographical information may be released to researchers at the discretion of the Foundation. Otherwise, Woodrow Wilson does not assist third parties in contacting Fellows.
Fellows may receive (by surface mail, email, or telephone) occasional requests to participate in Woodrow Wilson events or support the Foundation’s work. Fellows may also receive periodic updates, by surface mail or email, about the Foundation’s work. Any Fellow or friend of the Foundation who wishes to request revisions to these records may contact the Webmaster, who will forward the request to appropriate Woodrow Wilson staff for response.
The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation reserves the right to change this policy and to modify any program described on this Web site without notice or liability. Any such modification is prospectively binding on users. Please review this page periodically when you visit the site to receive information about the Foundation’s latest policies on privacy and information security.
