As far as internships and class, undergrad or grad is not a concern.   I would rather the student have prior experience with mobile apps from other internships, coursework, and even self-taught projects.  +1 for having bought your own Apple SDK license.  And +1 again for having your own app store posting.  My best iOS experiences have been with those students who also have done some Cocoa on the Mac.   About citizenship,  IBM does not provide sponsorship for US employment visas and ultimately our internships are about developing a pipeline of candidates for future fulltime opportunities here in the US.    So our applications ask students the two questions below and that was where my US comment comes from.

Are you a US National, permanent resident, refugee, asylee, or authorized to work under the amnesty provision under the US Immigration law? If you have immigration status E-1, F-1, H-1, or J-1, then the answer to this question should be NO. 

Will you now or in the future require sponsorship for employment visa status?
