Estimate $4250 (or $8250)* for 450 hour internship
Estimate $2250 (or $4250)* for 225 hour internship

* This cost is based upon half of the $8000/$4000 of the intern's current yearly registration fees paid by the program plus a $250 program participation administrative fee paid by the unit. (Some departments choose to pay 100% of student scholarships in order to participate because Chancellor's matching funds are limited)
