After being notified of acceptance into the program, students are asked to complete an extensive internship questionnaire. The information provided enables the Institute staff to identify internship opportunities that will help them reach their career goals.

Efforts are made to assign students to paid internships. However, we do not pass up great opportunities because an organization does not pay its interns. In such cases, the Institute provides a stipend to the student.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_section][vc_row type_row=”featues”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Institute scholars have interned at the following organizations:” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type_row=”featues”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
