Im a junior at a small liberal arts college but Ive become largely interested in unpaid internships for the upcoming summer. Besides interning in my hometown of L.A, NYC and Chicago have a breadth of offerings which are incredible. I am very competitive on paper, but the cost is an issue.
Question: Where can I find funding/grants/scholarships for unpaid summer internships?
I am not on financial aid at my school merit was provided for 3.7 GPA+ but my fathers earnings ($110,000) are too large for need-based. However, I have heard that some schools give financial aid for the summer is this true? Its not like we have money sitting around - L.A is a costly place!
