Previous information about Provost Internships:
Provost Internships are supported by the Office of the Provost in collaboration with the Office of Durham & Community Affairs.
Ph.D. students who do not have full summer funding are invited to apply for experiential internships with external organizations such as Durham Tech, along with other internship and research assistant opportunities with Duke units across campus.
The Office of the Provost works with external organizations to develop curated internship opportunities targeted at humanities and interpretive social science Ph.D. students.
In addition, several units across Duke offer research-inflected internships on campus. Hosts have ranged from Duke Forest and the Duke Marine Lab to the Social Science Research Institute, Duke University Press and the Office of Public Affairs & Government Relations.
All interns take an experiential learning workshop, GS950, during Duke Summer Session. Internships run for six, eight or 12 weeks.
