Grant Funds:

Grant funds should be handled by an awardee’s grant manager. Grant managers will receive your funding checks and track the current funds in your account. In order for the correct grant manager to receive your funds, you must update the grant administrator of any changes regarding your grant manager or address.

Fund checks take about one month to process once the request is sent to Tufts University’s accounting department. Please be patient as the Accounting Department may experience delays during different periods throughout the year.

Payment Schedules


Upon being awarded an IEG grant award, each awardee will receive a payment schedule showing their total fund amount and how the award will be allocated depending on whether you have a 12 or 18 month award period.

All IEG award funds are allocated as follows:
