Please use the Graduate Scholarships, Fellowships, and Other Academic Awards Payable form.
If the award is funded from a contract or grant please use the Student Stipends, Scholarships, and Fellowship form from the Contract & Grant Accounting Office.
Graduate and law student awards will be reviewed and approved through the Graduate School first and then processed through either the Scholarship Tracking/Financial Aid System or through Student Receivables Student Payment System, depending on whether or not the payments are to be made in installments or in one lump sum to the student(s).
Payment will be scheduled as indicated on the above form for each option and as follows:
For installment payment awards, the properly completed and approved form must be delivered to the Graduate School no later than the close of business listed in the Fellowships Payment Schedule in order for payment to be guaranteed by the month end.
Where the award is paid from funds used for the first time to make graduate scholarship payments and no award account is set up in the Scholarship Tracking System, the Graduate School will request a new Banner detail code from the UA Scholarships Office. This may delay the processing and payment of the awards beyond regular schedules.
If the funding source is from a sponsored program the form must first go to Sponsored Programs, Contract and Grant Accounting Office, for approval and then they will forward it to the Graduate School.
NOTE: A student must be or have been enrolled for the award period to receive the scholarship or award. If a student is selected for an award in a year subsequent to his or her last enrollment (e.g. Honors Day), and the student is not expected to return in the upcoming semester, then the award must be processed on a Miscellaneous Disbursement Voucher, and sent to the Accounts Payable office. Note on the MDV that the payment is for a non-enrolled student.
The regular date for stipends to be applied to student accounts is set for around the 25th or 26th day of each month. This will assist students by ensuring that they have sufficient time to access available funds and deposit to a bank account before the end of each month. When this date falls on a weekend, payment will be made the preceding Friday.

PLEASE NOTE THE SPECIAL DEADLINES AND PAYMENT DATES FOR NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER 2019.
As shown on the fellowship award forms (see attached) the regular date for stipends to be applied to student accounts is set for around the 25th or 26th day of each month. This will assist students by ensuring that they have sufficient time to access available funds and deposit to a bank account before the end of each month. Where this date falls on a weekend payment will be made the previous Friday.
*** In November, both submission deadline and payment dates are slightly earlier due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
**** In December, both submission deadline and payment dates are much earlier due to the UA Christmas closures.
All awards must be submitted to the Graduate School by the close of business on the deadlines listed above in order for payment to be guaranteed by the month end. This means that any forms which require additional approvals ‐ especially Contract & Grant funded fellowships – MUST be submitted to C & G Accounting Office before that date in order for them to approve and submit the forms to us by the deadline. This also includes any changes or updates for any award already in place, these must also be received in this office by the deadline for each month.
This office will not be responsible for ensuring that students get paid on time if you do not submit the forms by the appropriate deadline.
