After the grant is awarded, the funds will be transferred directly into the awardee’s discretionary account. The awardee will have 30 days after the event to supply receipts for expenditures. Any excess will be transferred back into the grant account. If the awardee fails to supply receipts within 30 days, the full grant award will be transferred back into the Teaching Beyond the Classroom account.
If the awardee is not able to use personal funds to secure third-party vendors, arrangements should be made through the Undergraduate Studies office to pay by Notre Dame Accounts Payable, within 30 days before or after the event. Please make these arrangements with Brenda Teshka (574-631-9468), prior to securing your third-party vendor so that funds transferred into your discretionary account can be reduced by this amount.
