COMPENSATION, FEES & COSTS

Most positions in the SACC Trainee Program pay a stipend to cover living expenses. Some pay more. Others such as summer internships may be unpaid. Positions with SACC Regional Chambers are usually unpaid. Unpaid positions may be best suitable for students who are required to do an international internship as part of their course work and thus can get a student loan.

The trainee candidate is required to have health and accident insurance that meets the following minimum requirements:
