The Financial Policy Office (FPO) is pleased to announce the publication of a new financial policy, Fellowship Payments and Reimbursements for Students and Non-employee Postdocs/Fellows. The FPO developed the policy in response to several departments' requests for assistance around taxation of fellowships paid to students and nonemployee postdocs. The policy provides guidance on when travel and other expenses of students/postdocs/fellows can be reimbursed without tax implications, and when these payments must be treated as gross income to the recipient.
