Students utilizing this option must have applied and been accepted into a competitive internship program offered through a reputable organization (e.g., government agency, corporation, non-profit organization), worked with a faculty member to create a unique research project, or developed an internship opportunity directly with an organization that does not have a formal internship program.

Applicants choosing this option must provide justification for financial support (i.e. the internship is an unpaid or low-pay opportunity) as an addendum to their personal statement; a draft budget outlining anticipated expenses with anticipated income is sufficient.
