Fund/Award Guidelines and Reimbursement Policy


  • Casstevens Research (including Family & Senior Fund)

  • Steven Daniel Smallen Memorial Fund

Please refer to the following information before beginning your project or prior to making any travel arrangements, if applicable.

Students who have been provided with financial support from any of the funds listed above should understand procedures for obtaining funds. The Dean of Faculty Office policy is to reimburse for expenses up to the awarded amount.  Students should submit original receipts along with a completed Check Request to the Dean’s Office in Buttrick Hall.  Students who have been awarded with financial support through a fund or grant may choose the frequency in which they submit receipts or opt to wait until their project has been completed. 

The final deadline to submit receipts for all expenses is May 5, 2018

Before making purchases related to your student project, please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  1. Only purchases related to the student project will qualify for reimbursement.
  2. If financial support for travel has been provided, only transportation to the approved location will be reimbursed.
  3. Students wishing to purchase materials for their projects locally and/or within New York State can obtain a tax-exempt form by printing and completing a New York State Tax Exempt Form. The Dean of Faculty Office will not reimburse for taxes incurred from purchases within New York State.
  4. Permanent equipment purchased from any of the above funds remains the property of Hamilton College and must be turned in when the project is complete.
  5. In preparation for reimbursement, please complete a Check Request Form and submit all associated and original receipts to the Dean of Faculty Office.  Any requests for reimbursement using this form should always contain the following information:
  • Student ID number
  • Direct Deposit (preferred method for reimbursement)
  • Campus mailbox
  • Mobile phone number
  • Complete mailing address if campus mail is not available
  • Original receipts (please make copies for personal records)
