    I applied for and was awarded a Career Services grant from my university to fund my full-time, unpaid summer internship. This grant (which wasn't extravagant, it's what I'd earn at a coffee shop or work study job) was incredible because it enabled me to pay for food and rent while I worked on building my resume. I think this is the ideal model for unpaid internships: it holds employers accountable to the university, and levels the playing field for those who have financial concerns but truly stand to benefit from a professional internship.

    I received Career Services credit for my internship at a consulate in Boston. The internship was around 17 hours per week, M,W,F, during the school year, and was unpaid. The credit I received didn't count toward my total credit load but will appear on my official transcript. The experience was very valuable although I do wish I could have received a traveling stipend for the cost of public transportation ($12 per week).
