The DeWitt Wallace Center, with generous support from alumni donors, awards funding grants for Duke students pursuing opportunities in journalism or media organizations. 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 or low-paid internships. Students can receive up to $3,000 in financial support.

Deadlines:  Summer: April 5; Fall and Spring semesters: rolling.

Other internship funding sources for Duke students:

  • Career Service office’s Internship Funding Program
  • Undergraduate Research Services (URS) database of funding sources within Duke (for research AND for internships) and  outside of Duke.

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.
