UROP Student Grant funding is issued directly to students in one payment near the beginning of the award period (minus expenses designated for disbursement to the department1).
Funding is paid as a stipend using the university's payroll system (job code 3205), so students will need to be enrolled in the system before they can be paid.
The UROP Student Grant Application collects information needed to enroll students in the payroll system; students will be asked to review and update their information in the Award Acceptance form.
Partners in the HR Service Center (HRSC) enter students in the payroll system. Project mentors of students receiving Assistantships or Individual Grants will be required to approve student award offers using the Mentor Award Confirmation form but will not process student payments.
Students without a social security number will need to apply for one to complete the payment process; instructions will be sent to applicable students.
Students are not required to track expenses or provide receipts to UROP.
1If any part of the award has been designated for disbursement to the department by the project mentor, the amount is noted in the official decision notice.
