Georgia ETV works closely with Brightwell Payments to process your monthly stipends. In order to do that, Georgia ETV is required to affirm that all students requesting stipends are eligible to receive a stipend and then must account for each student’s stipend individually. After confirming eligibility for students statewide, Georgia ETV then works with multiple accounting systems to review and submit an order to Brightwell Payments. Brightwell then works to apply applicable funds to each student’s account. That process typically takes 10-15 business days. Therefore, in order for Georgia ETV to make funds available to you by the 1st day of the month, information must be correctly submitted by the 10th day of the month prior.
Fortunately, you are able to request stipends by semester so you don’t have to take time every month to complete this request.
