**When you are ready to begin using your funds, you will need to submit a budget form for the intended expenses and the requested amount will be transferred to your card from your fellowship account. Your signed budget must be submitted one month prior to your first expense.**
Have your mentor sign off on your Budget Form and give it to Ami for final review.
Ami will have a prepaid MasterCard issued in your name for the total amount of your signed budget. It will arrive within 7-10 days of the request. (Requests are submitted on Tuesdays and Fridays of each week.)
You will register your card online as per directions you will be given with your card. This will create an online account where you (and Ami) can track all of your expenses.
The amount of funds that you requested on your budget form will be transferred onto your card from your WW account.
You will continue to keep every receipt as before and will give them to Ami at the completion of each stage of your research. Receipts should be turned in ordered by date and in one large envelope.
Cards without regular activity are automatically deactivated. You must keep your card active by logging into your account or checking the balance at an ATM at least once a month.
You will turn in your card to Ami at the completion of your project.
In order to add funds to your card, create a new budget form, have your mentor sign off on it, give the form to Ami for final review and Ami will add your requested funds to your card.
Keep your receipts and turn them in to Ami.
You will have to reimburse the program for any unallowable charges made with the card. Your account will be monitored regularly.
