 To comply with the Department of Labor (DOL) and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Surfrider Foundation can only accept unpaid internships if the intern receives academic credit and/or program hours for their internship participation. Only the academic institution and the student’s academic department can determine whether an opportunity aligns closely enough with the curriculum to warrant academic credit. The Surfrider Foundation has no authority to award academic credit. The unpaid internship is intended as an educational experience for the intern.
