We pay our interns, they are really part time workers, they work full time but don't get benefits.  In our case we only pay per diem if you work out of town.  The pay you get should be enough to cover your expenses.

After this spring I will have wrapped up my Sophomore year in a surveying bachelor's program....

Where?  Just curious.

Contact SAM. They have office all over the country and do all kinds of work. Great company - I used to work there.

The City of San Francisco offers internships.  While it doesn't show surveying specifically, those in surveying curriculum are encouraged to apply.  While the City pays a wage, I do not believe it covers housing. 

Review the following link for more details.

I would suggest National Park Service.  We have a program NPS GeoScientists in the Parks (GIP).   https://www.geosociety.org/GSA/Education_Careers/Field_Experiences/gip/GSA/fieldexp/gip.aspx

 

Don't let the title stop you "Geo" is pretty broad including geomatics.  Here in our Alaska Region, we have had GIPS conduct structure from motion jobs including setting ground control and a ton of flying (all our planes need an observer and someone running the event marking and camera gear).  Other students in the past have helped observe historical benchmarks along the Denali Park Road and submit OPUS Shared solutions.  Lots of jobs conducting mapping grade jobs mapping utilities, buildings, roads, trails.   I would show you those links, but due to government shutdown, sites are down.

Working in National Parks pays you in sunsets and sunrises and with your time off, you have wilderness at your beck and call.

Joel - message me if you want to know more.
