A: No it is not. Interns are encouraged to raise support for their summer with us, and donations can be processed as tax free donations.
Full time, year round interns may be eligible for a small monthly stipend.
A: Yes, you should be prepared to find you own housing, however, we will do our best to assist you in this.

Since schedules vary, we ask you to communicate with us regarding individual commitments.

You will be expected to interact with people of all types, creeds, colors and ages, so if you are not a people person, then this internship is not for you.
A: Yes, not too many, but there are some. Here they are:
