06/12/14 Graduate Student Benefits

TO: UVM Principal Investigators
FROM: Dr. John Evans, Interim Vice President for Research
DATE: April 17, 2014
RE: Support of Graduate Assistant Student Health Insurance and Workers’ Compensation Benefit on Grants; Tuition Payments on Grants

I am writing to all University PIs to inform you of an important change to the way health insurance and workers’ compensation benefits are paid for extramurally-supported graduate assistants. Currently those benefit costs are paid by the Graduate College. The information below applies only to predoctoral graduate assistants compensated by a sponsored grant or project for effort performed for the project. Predoctoral fellows or trainees supported on training grants or fellowships are not included.
