We can give you Internship credit (if your university allows it) for your work, but it is a non-paying Internship.

The cost covers your housing, materials, and events. It does not cover your groceries, meals, and travel. We encourage you to raise support to cover these costs and we will help you learn how!

You will need to submit a portfolio of your work along with the application. Contact Karen.Mechler@cru.org to find out how.
