The Search for Stipends


The Search for Stipends
« on: April 17, 2006, 03:35:27 PM »
Advance apologies for posting this on a couple different boards.

I've accepted an International Law (domestically based) / Public Interest internship this summer.  I accepted it because my Law School usually gives stipends of $3000 for students that take such jobs, which really would have been a perfect amount to cover my expenses (well, 4K would have been better  ;)).  Due to high demand this year, however, domestically based students got a mere 1K, which should put me into homeless/starvation territory.  Both my current school's and undergrad's career services office haven't been much help, and general web searches seem to pull up a bunch of garbage/scams, but I'm pretty sure that there's some money out there for stuff like this.  Any advice/links/whatever?
