I recognize this is a late call for a summer internship. Thinking this could be an opportunity for that student who may have a commitment that fell through- unfortunate situation that I understand has been more prevalent in the current climate. I am hoping to get some projects started as soon as possible. The internship can end when the student preps for onset of Fall Semester or could continue with fewer hours through Fall Semester.
