Anyone had their summer internship approved?

Postby Ky502 » Tue Mar 12, 2019 10:46 am

Has anyone received the email notification that their summer internship was approved?

I submitted mine a month ago, and I am now less than 8 weeks out from my start date. I will need to buy flights, book a rental car, and begin looking for housing in the area soon.

I emailed SMART to get an ETA and all they said was “You will receive a notification as soon as your internship request is processed. Thank you for your patience.”

If I were you, I would assume it will be approved and start booking these things from now. They will only get more expensive as it approaches, and it seems doubtful It will end up getting denied.

Absolutely do not assume.
I was denied for 2 summers in a row.
Contact your point of contact and ask them specifically.

Why would internships be denied? Is it always security clearance related?

Welcome. The Unofficial SMART Scholarship Forum is fully supported through this banner add. In the past, I have relied on this income to pay for all hosting and domain charges, but it has only covered half of my expenses in recent years. If this is the first time you are seeing a banner here, it is because an adblocker has prevented it from appearing (I don't blame you). If you have found this forum valuable, I would appreciate it if you consider supporting its upkeep.

Thank you for being a part of this community.
