Internship grants offered through the DeWitt Wallace Center
Critical funding support for any Duke students pursuing opportunities in journalism or media organizations is available, through the generosity of the Susan Tifft Undergraduate Student Internship Fund, Trinity Arts & Sciences, the Duke Endowment and other private alumni donors. Students must submit a separate application to be considered for internship funding support, and will have additional post-internship reporting requirements. Priority will be given to (but not limited to) students enrolled in the Journalism Policy & Media Studies Certificate Program, and engaged in unpaid internships. Students can receive up to $2,500 in financial support.
Deadlines: Summer: April 15; Fall semester: June 1; Spring semester, November 1
Other internship funding sources for Duke students:
- Career Service office’s Internship Funding Program (deadline March 1)
- Mimi Voorhees Award, for Public Policy majors receiving financial aid assistance
Additional resources may be available if your internship coincides with an independent study project, which entails independent or directed study in collaboration with a faculty member. To be eligible, you would need to enroll in an independent study course within the faculty member’s department or through the PJMS certificate program (PJMS 391). Visit the Independent Study and Research page of this site for more information and an application form.
