Field Site Stipends
Field sites are encouraged to provide stipends for students, who are typically undertaking extraordinary expenses to attend graduate school. If available, these stipends vary in amount and the decision to offer a stipend is completely dependent on the field site.
Work-study tasks and job responsibilities need to be separate from field placement tasks and activities. Students who are eligible for work-study financial support cannot count hours as field hours. These hours must be accounted for separately and must involve different tasks/responsibilities and supervisors. The role of a student learner must be separate from that of a student employee.
Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) Field Policy
Students are not permitted to work as a graduate student instructor (GSI) for the same person who is their assigned field instructor in the same field site where they are placed. The role of a student learner must be separate from that of a student employee.
