Unclaimed Award Policies

RBSEF Uncashed Award Check Policy


While it is the intention of RBSEF to ensure that 100% of designated award funds be enjoyed by the students who have earned them, we also recognize that students bear the responsibility to cash their checks or communicate with RBSEF if a check has been lost.


All designated special award funds will be disbursed on the evening of the RBSEF award ceremony.

Three months from the date of issue, RBSEF will email any students who have not cashed their checks to encourage them to cash the check and inform them that the check will not be negotiable more than six months from the date of issue.

Six months from the date of issue RBSEF will void any uncashed checks and return the unclaimed funds to the general fund.
