Once approved, your Conference Travel Grant will be applied to your IUPUI Bursar account. If you have a balance on your Bursar account, your grant will first cover the deficit on your account before being reimbursed to you. 

If you have not done so already, we highly recommend that stipend recipients sign up for Direct Deposit. You can do so here. You can also reach this page by going to and clicking on “learn more”  nder “direct deposit.” Direct Deposit allows quicker access to the funds reimbursed to you via your Bursar account. If you do not opt for Direct Deposit, you will receive a mailed check to your address on file with the university. Students who signed up for direct deposit should expect a refund 3-5 days after the scheduled disbursement date.
