To help Davidson students take part in the Job Shadowing Externship Program, the Center for Career Development is making funds available to help offset travel and accommodation expenses. Eligible expenses can only include transportation and housing. The minimum required to apply for funding is $50 in expected costs. Expense reimbursements may range from $50-$200, depending on the distance being traveled and necessity for an overnight stay.
In order to receive funding for the Job Shadowing Program, students must:
Only approved expenses for transportation and housing will be reimbursed. This includes gas, car rentals, train and plane tickets, and hotels. Food is not covered. Gifts to friends and family from host students are generally not required and are not considered reimbursable.
Though we will make every effort to help each student who applies, should we be forced to choose among eligible students, priority will be given to students as follows:
Students will be notified of the maximum amount they may be reimbursed and have two options for receiving the funds:
Grants will be categorized as Non-Qualified Scholarships. For domestic students, the college will not withhold taxes on the grants or report them on a Form-1099. Recipients are responsible for reporting the income on their individual taxes or their parents/guardians if they are considered a dependent. Students receiving financial aid will be required to report the grant as income on their aid application for the subsequent year.
International Students: These funds may be subject to taxes. Please note that we will not be able to cover the tax so it should not be included in your estimated cost when you apply for reimbursement.
