What happens if I accept a wise internship offer and another opportunity comes along later?

If you think you are likely to accept another internship or anticipate some other contingency that would prevent you fulfilling your commitment to the WISE program, you are asked not to apply and/or accept a WISE sponsorship offer. It is very difficult to fill vacancies that occur within a month or two of the start of the summer program. Certain costs (e.g. the cost of the reserved dorm room) are not refundable if you change your mind and then elect not to participate

If by some circumstance you accept a WISE Internship, but are forced to withdraw from the program, you are strongly encouraged to give notice as soon as possible of your withdrawal so that an attempt can be made to fill the vacancy. You may be liable for housing costs incurred that cannot be refunded to the WISE sponsors.
