Payments to Students During Projects

Payment to Students During Projects

Professional project students may receive payment for project work. This may take the form of salary, freelance fees or expense reimbursement. However, a professional project must not be simply an internship or the first 14 weeks of a permanent job. A project must have clearly specified beginning and ending dates, agreed work responsibilities and an on-site supervisor. A project must also allow time for completion of the analysis component. Your committee chair has the responsibility of ensuring that the academic standards of the project are maintained.
