Scorpion Intern Funding Program

Scorpion Intern Funding Program

The Career Services Center is offering funds to students participating in unpaid internship experiences. The purpose of the Scorpion Intern Funding Program (SIFP) is to encourage experiential learning opportunities that help students prepare for their careers while reducing financial challenges of participating in an unpaid internship. This program will support 20 students who secure unpaid internships for the Spring 2022 semester with $1,500 compensation. 

Students who meet all the eligibility criteria are encouraged to apply beginning Monday September 27th 2021.  

THE APPLICATION CYCLE FOR SPRING 2022 HAS NOW CLOSED. NO MORE APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact the Career Services Center’s Internship Manager, Kaytee Johns, via email or appointment.

*  Notice for School of Education or School of Nursing Students: This funding cannot be applied to clinical or student teaching experiences that are required per the School of Nursing (SON) and the School of Education (SOE) curriculum. However, the funding can be applied to unpaid internship opportunities in healthcare and/or education for students in the SON or SOE as long as the internship is completed outside of the scope of curriculum requirements.

∗ Notice Regarding COVID-19: In order to receive this funding, you must be an active NSC student enrolled in courses for the Spring 2022 semester. In compliance with NSHE, all NSC students must be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination in order to enroll for Spring 2022. Therefore, if you are not fully vaccinated before the Spring 2022 semester, you will not be allowed to enroll and will not be eligible for this funding.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of securing an internship and applying for this funding?

Participating in an internship provides hands-on experience in a field of interest and allows you to apply your skills in a professional environment. Internships also help you expand your professional network and build your resume.  

If selected to for this program, in addition to the benefits above, you also receive $1,500 in compensation that can be used to offset any costs associated with participating in an unpaid internship.

Who is eligible to apply?

Students who meet all the following criteria are eligible to apply: 

  • Have secured an internship relevant to your major and/or career goals/interests at the time of application
  • Be a degree-seeking student (undergraduate or graduate) enrolled in at least 6 credits at Nevada State College for the Spring 2022 semester.
    • Exceptions may be considered if you are completing your degree during the Spring 2022 semester and need less than 6 credit hours to finish your degree. Please contact kaytee.johns@nsc.edu for more information.
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher 
  • Have not received a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Warning and/or are not placed on SAP Probation for Spring 2022
  • Have a valid social security number (SSN) or individual tax ID number (ITIN)

 

Students who are DACAmented or Undocumented are eligible to apply. Please see the section below “Are DACAmented and Undocumented Students eligible?” for more information.

Are DACAmented and Undocumented students eligible to apply?

Yes! both DACAmented and Undocumented students are eligible to apply for this funding, regardless of their DACA and/or work authorization status.

The funds from this program will be taxable, therefore, in order to receive funds, students will need a valid social security number (SSN) or valid individual tax identification number (ITIN). If you are ineligible or unable to obtain a SSN, you may be eligible to obtain an ITIN. See more details about ITINs below.


What is an ITIN?

An ITIN is used for federal income tax processing and reporting purposes only. ITINs are not valid identification outside the federal tax system. ITINs do not change your immigration status or your authorization to work in the United States.

Who can apply for an ITIN?

Individuals who identify with one the following categories may file for an ITIN:

  • Does not have a SSN and are not eligible to obtain one
  • Nonresident alien who is required to file a U.S. tax return
  • U.S. resident alien who is (based on days present in the United States) filing a U.S. tax return.
  • Dependent or spouse of a U.S. citizen/resident alien.
  • Dependent or spouse of a nonresident alien visa holder.

If you have obtained a valid SSN through DACA or other immigration paths, you cannot apply for an ITIN and must use your SSN. Regardless of the possible termination of DACA, the assigned SSN will remain your SSN even if the individual’s work authorization terminates.

Confidentiality with ITINs

ITIN information is partially protected by Internal Revenue Code § 6103, which generally prohibits the IRS from disclosing taxpayer information, including to other federal agencies.12 However, there are important exceptions that you should be aware of. In general, the IRS is required to disclose taxpayer information to state agencies responsible for tax administration, to law enforcement agencies for investigation and prosecution of nontax criminal laws, or to powers of attorney and other designees.

It is important to know that for the most part, under current law, information on the ITIN is protected from being shared with other federal agencies, including immigration agencies. The IRS, historically, has been very invested in maintaining the confidentiality of its information, since the IRS does not want to see the inevitable reduction in tax revenue that would result if the confidentiality protections were weakened.

At any point, no one can predict what administration may try to do. Therefore, undocumented immigrants should know that
there is some risk associated with applying and filing for a ITIN.

How to apply or renew an ITIN

You may already have an ITIN if your parents ever filed incomes taxes and claimed you as a dependent. You can find out if you have an ITIN in your parents’ tax forms.

If you have an ITIN, make sure to find out if it has expired. If it has, you will need to renew it. Find information on ITIN expiration and renewal here: IRS.

If you do not have an ITIN, you can learn how to obtain one here: ITIN Guide or Independent Contractor Forms video from Immigrants Rising.

Questions 

For questions regarding the payment process for this program, please contact the Internship Manager in Career Services at kaytee.johns@nsc.edu.

For questions regarding the application or renewal of an ITIN, please contact the Internship Manager at the email above or the Manager for Undocumented Programs in CEDI at Mariana.Sarmiento@nsc.edu.

What internships are eligible?

An internship that meets all the following criteria will be eligible:

  • Internship is an unpaid 
  • Site where the internship will take place is a 501(c)3 organization (non-profit), federal, state or city agency, or a small start-up who is unable to provide compensation for internships 
  • Site where the internship will take place has a fully executed Site Agreement with Nevada State College prior to the start of the Spring 2022 semester.
  • Internship site provides training and supervision for intern(s) 
  • Internship site provides 120 or more hours of experience during the duration of the Spring 2022 semester.  (This equates to roughly 8 hours/week over a 15-week period.)
  • Internship provides opportunities for practical application and skills development (NACE, 2018) and does not consist of more than 20% clerical work (a.k.a. grunt work, busy work or whatever else it may be called) 

 

 

* Notice for DREAMers: Students who are DACAmented and Undocumented are eligible to apply, but they should consult with the Internship Manager when searching for internship opportunities. This is because students must secure an internship that is on our NSC List of Active Internship Site Agreements, and an individual’s work authorization status may impact their eligibility to apply to certain internships that are on this list.

*  Notice for School of Education or School of Nursing Students: This funding cannot be applied to clinical or student teaching experiences that are required per the School of Nursing (SON) and the School of Education (SOE) curriculum. However, the funding can be applied to unpaid internship opportunities in healthcare and/or education for students in the SON or SOE as long as the internship is completed outside of the scope of curriculum requirements.

When do internships take place?

The internships that students secure must take place during the Spring 2022 semester in order to be eligible for this program.

What application materials do I need to apply?

 To apply, you will be expected to: 

  • Answer questions related to your secured internship 
  • Upload an offer letter or other correspondence (copy of email communication will suffice) of internship offer from your internship site 
  • Upload an official or unofficial transcript that lists your cumulative GPA
  • Upload a 1-2 page essay (1inch margins, 12 pt font, double-spaced) that answers the question, “How do you believe the successful completion of this internship will contribute to your future career and/or academic goals?” 

What is the timeline for applications and selection?

  • Application Opens: Monday Sept 27th, 2021, at 8am PST 
  • Information Session #1: Thursday September 30th, 2021, from 1pm-2pm PST via Zoom 
  • Information Session #2: Tuesday October 19th, 2021, from 11am-12pm PST via Zoom 
  • Application Closes: Wednesday, December 1 at 11:59 pm PST 
  • Application Decisions Sent Out: Week of December 5-11
  • Accepted Student Orientation Sessions (Students who are awarded the funds only attend 1): 
    • To be announced- will occur in January.

Can I receive academic credit for my internship in addition to this funding?

Yes! If your academic program/college provides an internship course, you are welcome to enroll in it for academic credit. To receive academic credit for an internship, you must consult with the appropriate faculty member who oversees an internship course to receive permission to enroll.  

*** Please note that if you are also intending to receive academic credit for this internship experience, you will still be expected to complete the required number of hours for your internship course.  

For example, if a student intends to enroll in CRJ 491, that course requires 140 hours at an internship site. If a student receives this scholarship and also enrolls in CRJ 491, they would still need to complete 140 hours per the course curriculum. 

If I don't have an internship yet, how do I find internship opportunities?

Internships 

Coming soon.

Micro-Internships 

Micro-internships (also sometimes called micro-work experiences) are short-termpaidprofessional projects that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. Unlike traditional internships, Micro-Internships can take place year-round, ranging from 5 to 40 hours of work and are most often completed between one week and one months’ time. Micro-Internships are facilitated via the Parker Dewey platform, which connects current students and alumni with companies in need of support. Through micro-internships, you can share your time and expertise with the NSC community and show students how their classroom experiences connect to careers. And not only will you help current students and recent graduates gain experience and build valuable networks, but you will also get some work off your to-do list.

You will need to create an account through Parker Dewey in order to post your micro-internship. Parker Dewey does vet all micro-internship postings. If want to specifically recruit and hire NSC students for Micro-internships, make sure to select Nevada State College in the “Schools” section on your postings.

Mission

The Career Services Center works to educate and support current students and alumnx in navigating their career development journey by providing curated resources, programming and advising. As a state institution of higher education, we prepare the new majority of students for career success and economic mobility to support the needs of the Nevada workforce and be able to give back to their communities.

Values

We believe…

  1. Career development is a journey; it is a life-long process that doesn’t end at graduation.
  2. Career advising and support is a reciprocal relationship; students get out what they put in.
  3. Through utilizing our services, students will gain a better understanding of their professional skills, interests and available career pathways, thus feeling more knowledgeable about their options and more confident in their career decisions and overall career journey.
  4. All students and alumnx, regardless of immigration status, racial/ethnic identity, gender identity, etc. deserve access to equitable resources and support through our office.
  5. Any student who graduates from Nevada State has access to our career support and advising for life.
  6. Hands-on learning and professional workforce experiences reinforce the academic and professional development process by providing opportunities for direct application of skills, theories and models learned in the classroom.
  7. Career development is a collaborative effort with other campus stakeholders in order to effectively support and reinforce career competencies (NACE) both in and out of the classroom to create career-ready graduates.
  8. Fostering positive relationships with local employers and community leaders provides meaningful professional experiences and connections for students while also creating a pipeline of qualified candidates for the Southern Nevada workforce.
  9. Students who utilize our services and apply the tools and knowledge gained from career advising to their own journey can expect to be successful in the workforce upon graduation by securing gainful employment within 6 months of their graduation date.

Anti-Racist Statement

Our department recognizes that racism is pervasive in our society and that no part of it is exempt, including the systems of higher education and the workforce. While we cannot single-handedly control the actions, behaviors and opinions of the existing workforce, we can work to dismantle racist practices and beliefs within our sphere of influence. We do this by curating and tailoring career resources and services for marginalized populations that  help students navigate the challenges they may experience within our institution and in the workforce. We empower students to be change agents throughout their career journey by continuously challenging social and systemic norms within their own work cultures when they can do so safely.

We aim to provide our employer partners with the right tools to identify, discuss, and challenge racist beliefs, practices, and norms that may be present in their workplace cultures and educate on the workforce needs of the new majority so that they may become employers of choice for our Nevada State students and graduates.
