Compensation
USU ArtsBridge faculty mentors will receive a maximum of $700 per USU ArtsBridge scholar mentored for a full 24-hour project. This full honorarium entails weekly site visits to the assigned host classroom, co-teaching as needed, as well as ongoing weekly mentoring with your scholar. Honoraria will be determined by the length of the project and the level of faculty involvement in a project. Projects with less faculty involvement will receive reduced honoraria.

Mentors will be paid following a project, based on the hours committed. Payments are coordinated through Kathy Nielsen in the School of Teacher Education and Leadership (435)797-0374 kathy.nielsen@usu.edu. The timely delivery of honoraria is dependent on your completion of all required paperwork within the deadlines dictated by Utah State University’s payroll system. Payments that do not meet the deadlines will be issued for the next cycle.

See “Extra Service Compensation” worksheet for required paperwork.
