FEX FAQ for Sponsors

If your question is not answered here, please feel free to contact us.

How will I be matched with a student?

Students and sponsors will be matched through a lottery process in November. Students will select a FEX opportunity based on interest and accessiblity. After selecting an opportunity, the student will contact the sponsor to set up a mutually convenient date to complete the FEX.

Can I offer a FEX opportunity for more than one day?

Sure. You should discuss with the student a mutually agreeable time and duration when the student contacts you.

How will I be notified if a student selects me as a FEX sponsor?

Once students have selected their FEX positions, they will be given the contact information of their hosts. You should expect to hear from your extern in early December. In the event that your FEX opportunity is not selected by a student, you will also be notified during this time. We will help to find a student for your FEX opportunity.
