Keep your interests broad and consider the wide variety of internships available.
Yes, WISP interns work 6-10 hours per week for both winter and spring terms (unless you're a sophomore). You will receive $8.00 per hour for up to 100 hours per term. Yes, this will go towards work-study requirements.
