Once awarded, please contact your supervisor to determine how to proceed.  You will receive your award as originally outlined in your award letter.  However, you may have to work on your own – either at home or in a relatively isolated space at the University – and spend your time reviewing literature, assisting your supervisor with analyzing data, compiling a review article or other publication, etc.  The main change due to the COVID-19 situation is your working conditions and research duties may have to be altered to protect your safety as well as that of others.
