Stipend versus salary

Most fellowships may refer to the amount to be paid towards a fellow’s salary as a stipend; however, generally the funds designated for the direct support of compensation to the fellow are paid as salary.  Check with your administrator about certain funding sources if you have questions about your particular fellowship.   More information on stipend vs salary link
