Paid internships will be considered first for approval. No more than two unpaid internships per organization will be approved for credit.  Students are expected to be compensated for their internship.  Because the list of jobs is not comprehensive and does not reflect the number of internship opportunities that may be available, students are encouraged to seek out and apply for other available internships on their own. Each internship must be approved by the Internship Supervisor, Dr. Isabella Cunningham.
