Compensation, Travel, and Housing
The Hutchinson Center will provide a $4,500 stipend for participation in the Cancer Research Internship for NMSU Graduate Students.
Travel costs (up to $450), including airfare, ground transportation, and/or luggage fees, to and from Seattle are provided. Travel arrangements will be coordinated by Hutchinson Center staff unless otherwise requested.
Interns are responsible for their housing, meals, local transportation, and incidental expenses while in Seattle. Housing for the nine-week session is available at the University of Washington’s Stevens Court for approximately $1,500. This residential facility has clusters of four single-occupancy bedrooms that surround a living room, bathroom, and kitchen. Housing applications for Stevens Court will be sent to students who are selected to participate in the Cancer Research Internship in early March.
