"Stipend" is a troubling term as different entities and individuals use it in different contexts. For most federal sponsors, a stipend represents a fixed amount provided to someone in a training program to offset their living expenses. It is not remuneration or compensation provided for work performed; and therefore, the payment does not represent FTE or effort. Some non-federal sponsors will use the term concurrently with compensation for work performed. So, not "Stipends" but salary or wages are allowable.
