EIE grant recipients must use the awarded funds and ask for reimbursement within ONE YEAR of the award date.

Q. How do I access the funds? 

A. EIE funds are held in an account administered by the ISU Foundation. This account is set up to operate primarily on a cost reimbursable basis. Recipients are reimbursed after they have incurred the cost and provide the necessary documentation.  Funds will be reimbursed for coursework after proof of completion with a grade B or higher.

Q. Can you transfer the grant funds to me directly?

A.No, funds cannot be transferred in a lump sum out of the ISU Foundation account to an individual. These grants operate on a cost reimbursable basis. Some expenses could be directly costed to the EIE account at the time they are incurred.

Because each grant recipient is unique, the Extension Fiscal Office will advise and assist with questions.  Please contact the Extension Fiscal Office at 294-5508 for assistance.

When your project is completed, fill out the follow-up report and send to: Jane Goeken at
