What is the cost of hosting an SYEP intern in my department?

All departments are responsible for paying their student during the summer. The SYEP team does not have a set hourly wage that interns must be paid, however, at a minimum, students will be paid minimum wage. The team highly encourages managers and departments to pay even $1-$2 more per hour, if possible, as it makes a large difference to the student interns. In total, for the entire 6-week program for a full-time internship opportunity (35-40 hours), the total cost will be approximately $3,000+ to host an intern for the summer.
