Online Study Funding Options

We collect information from Financial Management Office and list those specifically applicable to the BRITE community. We sort the information by the types of payment that may occur in BRITE Lab studies.

Regardless of the types below, all payments to research participants should follow Policy and Procedures 103.

1. Type A: One-time gift card payment of less than $25 dollars. *Not recommended
  • Policy highlights:
    • Maximum gift card value is $25.
    • Variable payment not available for this option.
    • Only one gift card can be given to one recipient each year. This will use up the pool very quickly.
    • Gift cards cannot be given to Non-Resident Aliens.

2. Type B: Pay gift card for a study that is for less than one year. *Recommended

3. Type C: Pay for a study that is for more than one year.
