Development, University and Non-UAB Student Training Programs
Development and University programs are typically short-term programs conducted during the summer months and are designed to provide participants with practical experience in academic pursuits and research. Programs are designated as either University Programs or Development Programs dependent on the source of funding (e.g. institutional funds or sponsored research funding.)
Programs that are conducted over an extended period of time but meet all of the other criteria of Development or University Programs are classified as Non-UAB Student Training Programs.
Payments issued under one of these recognized programs are classified as scholarship/fellowship (trainee payments). All participants should be made aware of the taxability of the payments to the individuals.
In order to request that a program be established as a development, university or non-uab student training program, the requestor must submit a memorandum containing the following information:
- Project mission statement
- Description of the participants
- Payment amount and source of funds (including the PTAO or ASBOF account string)
Programs that are supported with sponsored research funds are approved by the Director of Payroll Services in consultation with the Office of Grants and Contracts Accounting while programs that are supported with institutional funds are approved by the University Provost.
Please forward requests to Jennifer Ragland via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (975-7417).
Once the determination regarding acceptance of the program has been made, the requestor and other appropriate parties will be notified of the approval.
