Humanities Summer Internships

The Humanities Summer Internship program is an innovative opportunity for doctoral students in the humanities to gain transferable skills for career paths inside and outside academia. This program provides competitive funding for doctoral students enrolled in the Departments of History or English to participate in internships in nonacademic settings such as publishing, nonprofit organizations, museums, and community historical groups. By working outside their departmental home, these students develop valuable abilities to communicate complex ideas to public audiences, advocate for important social causes, and apply their research skills to new areas of inquiry. Award amounts will range between $2000 and $4000; award amounts are at the discretion of each department, and departments may provide additional funding to support students.
