Students are required to be present at all UBMS sponsored events. If I student fails to attend any event or fails to complete their reflection, they will not be eligible to receive a stipend. If for some reason a student needs to miss an event, communication with the UBMS Staff so we can help students make alternate arrangements.
Provided a student meets all attendance and reflection requirements, they will be paid $40 a month during the school year and $60 for the entire summer session. UBMS cannot exceed those amounts and cannot retroactively award stipends (this means that if a student misses a stipend, they cannot make it up the following month).
Students will not be paid during the first 90 days in the program. This time is considered a “probationary period.” Provided all requirements are met during that time, students will receive all stipends owed for that period.
Students must provide a monthly reflection,as a way of validating their participation in program activities and events.Reflections should be typed in 11 point Calibri Font, double-spaced, and fill 2-pages with standard one inch margins on the sides, top, and bottom. Reflections must be submitted at the end of every month during the academic year (September – May) and one following the 6-week summer session the end of July. Each monthly reflection will be based on the most significant learning experience(s) over the course of that period.
Monthly reflections will address the following questions:
1. What happened?
2. Why was it important?
3. How does it affect me as a learner?
Reflections may be turned in any day following the last session or activity ofthe month, but due no later than the first Monday of the following month. If a student fails to complete their reflection to a satisfactory degree, their stipend may be withheld.
Journals will be due: Stipend checks will be available:
