Survey of American College Students 2022: Experience of Internships
We asked: If it was paid did you receive an hourly wage or an honorarium or lump sum payment? 72.41% did not answer this question while 9.6% of those sampled received an hourly wage and 7.99%, a lump sum or honorarium. Older respondents were much likelier to have received an hourly wage than lump sum or honorarium. Use of lump sums or honorariums was most common in internships for student in philosophy and psychology and history or classics; for students in these fields lump sums or honorariums were more common than wage payments; the reverse was true for all other fields. Lump sum or honorariums were also much more common with African American than all other respondents; for African Americans, 14.96% of respondents had had an internship for which they were paid through a lump sum or honorarium while 11.81% had received an hourly wage at an internship. For Caucasians, 18.28% had received an hourly wage and only 6.52%, an honorarium or lump sumThis report, based on data from a representative survey of 1,765 full time college students at 4-year colleges in the USA, looks closely at the number and kinds of internships sponsored by colleges that students have taken. The study helps its readers to answer questions such as: which students have had internships and which have not? How many have they had? How satisfied were they with these internships? Were they paid or unpaid internships? If paid, were they paid by the hour or by lump sum or honorarium? If paid by the hour, how much did students make?
