Important Forms

Student Insurance & Liability Waivers

Some employers require interns to obtain liability waivers from their schools. Students who are asked to provide a waiver must go through the Five College Risk Management Office. Scroll to the bottom for Smith College instructions.

Supervisor Confirmation Form & Letter

You are required to submit a Supervisor Confirmation Form* AND a letter on official letterhead or email from your host organization that confirms internship offer and describes your internship duties and how you will be supervised. Your supervisor may print out the form (PDF) or complete it online.

Letter for Supervisor

Give the Supervisor Letter to your supervisor when you begin your internship. It contains important information related to your Praxis funding. Your supervisor will use this form to comment on your job performance and confirm that you worked a minimum of 220 hours. This letter will also notify your supervisor of his or her need to help you fill out a learning contract at the end of your internship. (A copy of this letter will be given to you once your completed application has been approved by The Lazarus Center)

Learning Contract

With your internship supervisor's help, fill out the learning contract at the beginning of your internship. By going over a contract with your supervisor you will be able to understand what will be expected of you, and you will be able to communicate your learning goals to your supervisor. This contract is for you to keep and to refer to as needed. You do not send a copy of the learning contract to the Lazarus Center.
This document will be given to you once your completed application has been approved.

Over the summer Lazarus Center staff will be in touch via e-mail with you and your supervisor. This is a chance to hear your thoughts and your supervisor's feedback on how your internship is progressing.

Concentration Director Confirmation Form

For Praxis Plus ONLY. This form must be completed by the director of your concentration and submitted with your application.
