Speaking for direct experience ... interns can be VERY expensive.
Think to the training time and to the time spend in fixing their bugs,
time which has to be spent by experienced *expensive* programmers.
A Python (or Java) guru may cost you 10 times more than a student,
but it may actually be more convenient for you to hire the guru.
Unless you can find a student which is also a guru, but you must be 
very lucky to find one, don't count on that too much.
