Honorarium

Honorarium Payment Information

The honorarium will be paid AFTER the event has taken place (takes about 2-3 weeks to process).

Information Needed

  • Flyer announcing the lecturer or presentation or the e-mail announcement
  • Copy of the agreement letter or e-mail between the inviting party and the visitor
  • Completed honorarium form

If you decide to pay the visitor more or less after you already agreed to pay a certain honorarium, you will have to contact the IP Dean, Downing Thomas, to get this change approved.
