  • E-Stripend Guidelines For Principal Investigators


    E-Stipend is a faster, more secure stipend and scholarship payment service for Principal Investigators and stipend/scholarship recipients. Stipends and scholarships with three or more equal monthly payments are converted into electronic payments via direct deposit instead of checks. Stipends with fewer payments will remain on a paper check basis.

    The benefits of the
    S-Stipend service include:


    • No lost, missing, or late checks. No check cashing fees for students or research assistants. No need for costly messenger service to distribute checks to campuses.
    • Payments are automatically generated on the same day of each month resulting in a more timely and predictable recurring payment schedule known in advance.
    • Project Directors and PIs can modify payments with minimal involvement.
    • Stipend/scholarship payments will be made electronically into the recipient's checking account via direct deposit. The RF will establish a free E-Fund account for recipients without a checking or savings account to facilitate direct deposit. Note: The student must be able to provide a valid social security number.
