Your stipend will be paid to you in two installments. You will receive the first portion of your awarded stipend before or at the beginning of your internship.
Your second check of $200 will be issued to you after you have completed your internship, submitted a summer activity report, and after your supervisor has submitted a letter or e-mail commenting on your work performance and confirming that you completed a minimum of 220 hours.
When to expect your first check
It may take 3-4 weeks to receive your first check after your application has been approved, or longer than 3-4 weeks if you submit your application closer to the deadline.
You can expect your second and final installment of $200 approximately 3-4 weeks after BOTH of the following items have been submitted to the Lazarus Center:
- Supervisor Completion Letter: Please have your supervisor submit a letter on official letterhead or e-mail from your internship supervisor confirming the completion of your internship, that you worked a minimum of 220 hours, and commenting on your work performance.
- Summer Activity Report: You can complete and submit this form online here: Summer Activity Report
- IMPORTANT: Failure to provide a Summer Activity Report AND Supervisor Confirmation Letter to the Lazarus Center at the end of your internship will result in you being charged for the full amount of your Praxis funding and forfeiture of the final $200 stipend payment.
Your second check will be direct deposited to your account or mailed to the address you indicate at the bottom of the Summer Activity Report.
If you are currently active for direct deposit for payroll, your Praxis stipend will be direct deposited to that same account. If you are not set up for direct deposit, you may choose whether you want your first check mailed to your campus mailbox or to your permanent mailing address. Checks will not be sent to any other addresses.*
*If your permanent home mailing address is outside of the United States, you can request that your check be mailed to a U.S. address.
