Additional Information:

  • This internship is part of the Facilitated Internship Program. If the student works fewer than 100 hours, it will be considered a micro-internship. What is a micro-internship? This is a fairly new concept and is like an internship, but involves fewer hours of work. Although the hours are fewer, the experience is still robust and an intern for this position would end with a solid portfolio, experience in coding, and an expanded network. The stipend for the micro-internship is $100. All other aspects of the Facilitated Internship Program are the same.
  • Applicants are encouraged to apply for the Career Exploration Scholarship.
