How To Pay For Your Internship...
Spending 8-12 weeks abroad (often in an unpaid position) can be expensive.
Take a few moments to work out a budget once you have a set plan.
If you have been offered a placement, you should begin applying for funding immediately. The best place to begin is perhaps your home department. Often, departments have funds that they reserve for undergraduate experiential or co-curricular activities. Begin there. For examples, Romance Languages & Literatures has stipends available for International Internships.
LSA has need-based scholarships for International Internships. Check their homepage to see if you are eligible to apply:
If you will be undertaking a French-language internship, you should apply to the French American Chamber of Commerce, as they have travel stipends to award.
