Internship grants offered through the DeWitt Wallace Center

With generous support from the Susan Tifft Internship Fund, The Lorber Fund, the McCarthy Family Internship Fund, the Hughes Family Fund, and many other alumni donors, the DeWitt Wallace Center is able to provide funding grants for Duke students pursuing internship opportunities in journalism or media organizations. Students must submit an application form to be considered for internship funding support, and will have additional post-internship reporting requirements. Priority will be given to (but not limited to) juniors (rising seniors) and students enrolled in the Journalism & Media minor and the Journalism Policy & Media Studies certificate programs, and engaged in unpaid or low-paid internships. Students can receive up to $6,000 in financial support.

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 JAM minor or PJMS certificate programs (JAM/PJMS 391).  Visit the Independent Study and Research page of this site for more information and an application form.
