Do I have to do my dietetic internship near Amherst, or can I do it anywhere? Do I get paid or do I have to pay for it?

You are able to go anywhere you would like and any place that accepts you – it is a competitive process to apply for the internship after the Bachelor’s degree. Just make sure that the program has been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). There is a tuition that will vary based on the program. There are scholarships available through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly American Dietetic Association) and student loans can be deferred during this time. Some programs offer stipends to help support the intern. A list of possible DI’s and costs can be found at the Academy website.
