Internship Compensation

Internship Compensation

You are here

It is JCVI policy that interns must be compensated monetarily and/or by earning school credit. Students under the age of 18 are required to obtain a work permit from their local high school in both Maryland and California regardless of their residence.

School Credit

If the internship is for school credit students are responsible for obtaining any appropriate school departmental approvals to determine specific academic assignments required. JCVI does not issue credit, but we will work with you to complete documentation from your school.

Monetary Compensation

Interns are compensated at an hourly rated based on the level of education completed. Traditionally, summer interns work a full-time (40-hour) work week. Those interning during the school year should work no more than 20 hours per week. Both programs run between 8-12 weeks.

2019 Compensation Rates

Rates are based on a semi-monthly pay period. All deductions required by federal and state law will be processed through payroll.
