Expect to work at the internship a minimum of 25 hours per week, at least 8 weeks (with some exceptions).

Students are selected for the program through a competitive application process – generally requiring a minimum 3.25 GPA and a minimum of 45 credit hours earned by the time the internship begins. They receive academic credit (between 1 and 3 credits), for which they pay tuition fees and are awarded the $1,600 to $2,850 stipend to help defray the costs of the internship. The tuition fee for Summer 2017 is $1,254 per credit.

Students must complete a sexual harassment prevention workshop before they can begin their internships. Click here for more info.
