Student Educational Activity Agreements
The University of Idaho actively pursues opportunities for students to gain educational experience outside of the traditional classroom and/or with industry partners. To minimize risk for sponsors, students and the university, Student Educational Activity Agreements are required for all such activities involving UI students.
Please choose the agreement that is appropriate for your project or activity below. Completed agreements should be returned to email@example.com. Sponsors with policy-related special circumstances that do not allow acceptance of all agreement terms may contact the Contract Review Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-885-2014.
