What qualifies as an Awards / Prizes payment?

Used to pay awards and prizes for Non-UW Employees

Can be used for UW Students only if there is no stipulation on how funds are to be used by the student. Examples of this are awards or recognition for a special achievement, such as winning a judged competition, where the money can be used for any purpose. See Student Prizes and Awards
