    1. Hi Camilla!

      It’s open to anyone who’s a current undergraduate and has authorization to work in the US. If you are not US residents but in college and have a work visa as well as social security card, you are eligible. It depends on what sort of visa you have – some student visas don’t allow students to work here, only to study, so it has to be determined by a case by case basis.

      Hope this is helpful!
