Yes, you can deduct the unreimbursed expenses that you may have had for your internship. If you were a paid via a W-2 then these would be deductible under Job-Expenses (if you itemized). If you were paid via a 1099-MiSC then it is deducted under the schedule C business income.

Can I deduct the airfare to get there as well as meals while there?  What else are reasonable expenses?
