Coalition director: Internships key to stopping 'brain drain'

(Continued)

"If you pay your intern $10 an hour, we'll reimburse you $5," Stanley said. "If you want to hire a second intern, now you'll be able to afford that."

Both Stanley and Boston stressed it is illegal to have an unpaid intern. While compensation can vary, it must be at the federal minimum wage level.

Finger said after the talk that he was impressed with the information provided to the members of the coalition.

"I thought we had a good discussion," Finger said. "Any tool we can use to keep our students here is important to us."
