College sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students, law students and recent graduates are eligible to apply. Benefits include a bi-weekly compensation of $700 and opportunities to earn academic credits and a scholarship.

Cherry said these are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, with a typical work day starting at 8:30 a.m.
