These internships are normally unpaid, but students may opt to receive up to 3 credits of academic credit for their participation. Additionally, students whose majors are within the Departments of Anthropology, Biology, History, Linguistics, Psychology, Sociology, or World Languages are eligible to receive a $2,375 stipend applied to their student accounts in three installments at the end of weeks 4, 9, and 15 of the semester.
