Continue adding payments until the sum of payments equals the total amount on the scholarship award.

    Conditional Payments

    Checking this box indicates that the recipient must do something in order to receive the next installment. When the books are closed at the end of the year; installments that are marked as Conditional (Yes) will have the expense and the payable reversed at year end. The reversal is made in a separate fund, so your fund statements aren't changing throughout the year. This fund can be set in System Data -> Grant Options -> Conditional Payment Fund.

  9. Click Set, then enter and select the School/Grantee that will receive the check for the scholarship award.

    If the check will be cut to the student, the student's native profile must also be made a Grantee. If the student is not listed as a grantee in their native profile, the student's name will not populate when setting the School/Grantee for a recipient payment.

  10. Click Edit to enter a Student Number.
