Stipends are reloaded onto your Brightwell Prepaid Card on the 1st day of each month. A request for a stipend must be submitted by the 15th of the prior month. For example, ETV must receive the request for an April stipend by March 15th in order for it to be reloaded on April 1st. If the request for a stipend is received after the 15th, it will not be reloaded on the 1st of the next month, but the month after that. For example, if the request is received March 16th, the card will be reloaded on May 1st.
