Faculty Enrichment Grants

Faculty Enrichment Grant Payment Information
Your faculty enrichment grant may include funds for salary and/or expense reimbursement.

If your faculty enrichment grant includes a salary component, it will be included as an additional amount in your regular paycheck.

If your faculty enrichment grant includes expense reimbursement, to access the funds please follow the instructions provided to you by Associate Academic Dean Sunil Kukreja.


Federal Tax Information for Faculty Enrichment Grants
As a faculty member of the university, the salary component of your faculty enrichment grant is subject to both federal income and FICA (Social Security and Medicare) tax withholding. It will be reported to you and the IRS on IRS Form W-2, along with other taxable earnings paid to you by the university. The Payroll Office issues W-2 tax forms in January following the applicable calendar year.

The portion of your faculty enrichment grant that is expense reimbursement is not subject to federal income tax and will not be included on your IRS Form W-2, provided you submit the appropriate substantiating documentation.
