Human Subject Research Payments

Streamline payments to research study participants

If your institution regularly disburses payments for grant recipients and other research participants, you know how inefficient and costly paper checks and cash can be. Consider Citi's innovative Research Subject prepaid program. This unique solution is ideal for delivering research study payments across all studies.

Using a consultative approach, we provide you with a central, secure payment tool that allows your institution to expediently deliver all funds using a single process, via a single prepaid card. The Research Subject prepaid program ensures confidentiality among research study participants, while delivering the benefits of flexibility, convenience and control over funds.

Citi Prepaid handles additional payments within academic institutions: Financial Aid Refunds and Payroll/Pension.
