Award Checks and Money Prizes

Many AIChE awards include monetary prizes, stipends or travel allowances and are usually coordinated with a Division/Forum Annual or Spring Meeting award presentation event.

To establish a consistent process for award check requests, Division/ Forum Award Representatives are asked to submit a check requisition to the appropriate AIChE staff liaison. An Excel check requisition form is available here:

Award check requisition form

The form is not an online transaction and cannot be filed electronically. Please fill out the form and submit via e-mail to vma@aiche.org. Be sure to complete all the available fields:

  • Include a Social Security number for the award winner
  • Permanent mailing address for the award winner
  • Mailing address of the requestor (if you would like the check sent to you ahead of time)
  • The requestor, and the group's "charge to" account code (see below)

NOTE: Please allow six weeks for processing. Check requests placed less than six weeks prior to a presentation event cannot be guaranteed for timely arrival.

AIChE Group Account Codes
When you request an award check using the requisition form, you must provide the appropriate monetary account code for your group.

AIChE headquarters provides a Chart of Account codes to each group treasurer. Funds for award checks should be drawn from the category "Monetary Awards." Contact your division or forum treasurer for the correct Cost Center code. If you have difficulty finding this information, contact your AIChE staff liaison.
