Do you think you can't afford an unpaid internship? Think again. You might be overlooking a possible solution. Don't let the lack of a salary prevent you from taking the internship of your dreams. Instead, look for grants that provide funding for unpaid internships. Your first stop should be your university's financial aid office. Many schools offer internship grants, which can be used to cover living and travel expenses.
