It will be refunded to each intern upon the successful completion of the internship program and graduation OR in the event CAPA-CEF is unable to arrange an internship placement for you.

    Refunds will be issued via check to the applicant/participant and mailed to the address we have on record.

    If an applicant/participant voluntarily withdraws from the CAPA-CEF internship at any time during the program (before completion and graduation), the deposit will be forfeited.

Your internship begins in early June (when school is out for summer break) through mid-August. IF A CAPA-CEF INTERN IS UNABLE TO MEET THESE TIME REQUIREMENTS, THEY WILL BE INELIGIBLE FOR THE PROGRAM.
