Should I have received an internship support payment?

Postby HOrobOD » Mon May 07, 2018 12:59 am

My April stipend payment was $4,000 higher than it normally is. I am wondering if I should have received this amount. I have reached out to SMART with no reply. My school is about 20 miles from my SF and so is my summer home, therefore I don't meet the requirements for a support payment... I need to know if this is legit, but am not receiving any response from SMART. Anyone else have this happen?

My April stipend was 6,000 which is on par with all my internship support.

I know that they say the summer internship isn't paid, but I'm sure they give you something for working (Which it sounds like they did).

I also received my internship request form back from my liaison with all my info approved -- Haven't you?

Yes I received the request form back and it says I am not eligible for an ISP because the distance they reported is 17 miles.

I am also within the 50 miles (and got the form back), I didn't get any additional support - nor am I expecting to. I think something got mixed up on yours.

Yep, I FINALLY heard back from SMART after emailing them again and I will apparently need to pay back the extra...
