February Stipend

piggy bank, money, finance


Riva has raised the amount you can earn each month to $40!

Please note that due to staff changes we are a few months behind in issuing stipend checks. If you are concerned if your previous grade checks were received you can check with Riva Villa (villar@evergreen.edu). Please also make sure that you are sending your grade checks to RIVA and not Elizabeth. Some students were emailing the wrong person and it was causing additional paperwork and slowing down processing of stipends
