Question Regarding Phase 2

Postby PlentyOfWhales » Tue May 21, 2019 11:26 am

I was told today that my SF may not be able to hire me after I graduate due to no positions open. What happens in this situation? Am I released from the SMART program? Do I have to repay SMART back? Do they send me to anothet base that has an opening?

You'll either be assigned another SF, or they'll release you without any debt -.. congrats

According to the Handbook "Under rare circumstances, scholars must be willing to
relocate to and complete the internship periods and the service commitment with a new SF located
anywhere within the United States if re-assigned by the SMART Program." So yes there is a chance they will release you, but they can also place you anywhere

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).
