Guidelines & Regulations

All Praxis funded internships are unpaid; any compensation from a host organization will be deducted from the Praxis grant.

Internships That Qualify for Praxis Funding

Your internship qualifies if it:

If You Don't Complete Your Required 220 Hours

If, for extraordinary circumstances, you are forced to leave your internship before you have completed 220 work hours, you must call the Praxis Data Assistant at the Lazarus Center before you leave or, if that is not possible, immediately after.

If you do not complete your 220 hours before the start of the fall semester, you will be required to reimburse Smith College a pro-rated portion of your Praxis stipend, or the entire award that was given to you. The amount you owe will be placed on your next tuition bill.


Your internship does not qualify if:

Note: The Lazarus Center has the right to reject any internship it deems inappropriate.

Organizations requesting a Smith sign-off on liability waivers, assumption of risk forms, or a memo of understanding must contact Beth Carmichael, Five College Risk Manager via ecarmich@mtholyoke.edu or 413-538-2730.
