Stipend Payments

Stipend Payments

A stipend is taxable compensation used for small, one-time projects. 
  • Use of stipend payments is discouraged in favor of contract payments initiated via Workflow for faculty or staff, and hourly pay for students.
  • Stipends have no associated FTE, so federal grants rarely allow stipends.
  • Stipends must be in an approved award budget to be allowed.
  • Additional Staff or Additional Faculty Payment forms must include the amount, work description, and accounting code and be signed by the Dean; and routed to ORSP for processing.
  • 7.65% FICA benefits are charged over and above the stipend amount.
  • Payments are made during months the work occurs.
