**Once you have found an internship site that wants to bring you on board, you will need to have the internship approved by Cassandra Ott-Kocon. Once she has approved it, you will need to fill out the FITS Internship Work Plan. One of the pages will need to be filled out and signed by the internship site supervisor. Then, you can submit the work plan to Cassandra Ott-Kocon, so she can enroll you in the FITS 493 Internship class.
