Give a Stipend

A stipend is a taxable fellowship paid to a student which is typically used as a living allowance. Stipends are often made as an incentive for a student to attend a class or participate in a particular program at VCU. Stipends are never payments involving services performed for the University. Stipends can be paid directly to the student or applied as a credit to a student’s account. Payments made directly to the student are processed through Accounts Payable. Payments applied as a credit are processed through Student Accounting.
