What is Internship?
Internship programs are designed to allow foreign college and university students or recent graduates to come to the United States to gain exposure to U.S. culture and to receive hands-on experience in U.S. business practices in their chosen occupational field.

Internship Sponsor Organizations
Some sponsors will (for a cost) place you an internship, and perhaps even help with housing and other logistics. If you have already found your own internship or trainee-ship, other sponsors will solely do your paperwork and get you your visa for a lesser fee (and perhaps even at the cost of your employer rather than yourself!)
