Using a Student Stipend Form

Using a Student Stipend Form

The Student Stipend Form should only be used to pay students who are taking part in a one-time event or who are being paid to perform a particular task. It should not be used to pay students who are engaged in hourly work. For hourly work, Student Certifications and Time Cards are all electronic. The Human Resources website has more information on paying students hourly.

Example of work that requires a Student Stipend Form:
  • Student is hired to construct a website to highlight the grant program.
  • Student is hired via a 3M Small grant to complete a research project resulting in a poster presentation.
 

Note that in these cases, the student is assigned to complete a particular project, irrespective of how many hours it takes to finish the project.

Example of work that requires an electronic Student Certification Form:
  • Student is hired to work ten hours a week to help administer the grant.
  • Student is hired as a Research Assistant to help the PI collect and analyze focus group data over the course of the year.
 

Note that in these cases, the student is expected to work a certain number of hours each week or semester and record those hours on a timecard.

On the form, be sure to include student's name and ID#.  Describe the work that has been performed.
Indicate the date(s) of the work, the total payment, and the grant Banner number.
The student and the student supervisor must sign and date the form then submit the Student Stipend Form to ORSP for final approval.
