When You Are Awarded a Grant
Tokyo Tech accepts and treats research grants as donations for education and research. When a faculty member is awarded a research grant, depending on the policy of the organization, type of grant, etc., it can be received in one of the three ways outlined below.
How Grants Can Be Received and Procedures to Follow
An organization awards a grant to a faculty member and deposits the grant in the Institute's bank account. After it has been processed internally, the grant will become available to the faculty member through the Purchase Request System.
If an organization wishes to deposit a grant in a faculty member's personal bank account, the faculty member must transfer the grant to the Institute's account once it is received in his or her personal account. After it has been processed internally, the grant will become available to the faculty member through the Purchase Request System.
In the following cases, the grants are treated as individual income and do not have to be donated to the Institute.
- (a) Prize money received personally for awards
- (b) The application was submitted as a private citizen (personally) for research to be conducted outside of employment hours
- (c) Accounting is handled by the secretariat of an independently established academic society, etc.
Note: In the aforementioned cases, submission of a Notification Form was required until FY2018. However, from this fiscal year, submission is no longer necessary.
