Awarded applications to companies not affiliated with the University of Kentucky (UK) will be established as subcontracted awards. UK-affiliated companies (e.g., ASTeCC, Coldsteam Research Campus, etc.) receiving awards will not be subcontracted; instead, students will be paid directly from the University of Kentucky and will be required to submit biweekly timesheets and complete the necessary paperwork to be added to the UK payroll system.
A suggested internship pay rate is $15 per hour, but may need to be adjusted for institutional equity commensurate with applicant experience.
The internship can support up to eight weeks at full-time effort (40 hours per week). The actual hours per week and the specific weeks chosen within the prescribed window are left up to the applicants.
The internship must occur between April 1, 2017 and July 31, 2017.
Awarded UK applicants will complete the employee timesheet found here: http://www.uky.edu/hr/employment/forms/steps-timesheet. The payroll schedules that prescribe the timing for submitting these are found here: http://www.uky.edu/EVPFA/Controller/payroll.htm. Timesheets should be signed by the mentor/supervisor and then forwarded as a scanned email attachment to Dr. Czar Crofcheck (firstname.lastname@example.org). Non-UK awardees are permitted to track student effort independently.
Funded applicants, both the student intern and the mentor/supervisor, are expected to each independently write and submit a brief end-of-project report summarizing their thoughts on the internship, discussing the projects they worked on, and providing any suggestions about how the program and experience might be improved in the future. These reports should be submitted directly to Dr. Czar Crofcheck at email@example.com.
The application requirements assume both the company and the student(s) are already known to each other. If that isn’t the case, interested parties are welcome to submit their respective parts of an application to Dr. Czar Crofcheck at firstname.lastname@example.org. If doing so, companies should specify educational expectations and students should indicate their areas of interest. KY NSF EPSCoR will attempt to contact participants with matching interests so that a complete application can be developed. A matching of interests cannot be assured and should not be expected.
