Summer in the Field Fellowship Program: Information Session

  • Starts12:00 pm on Wednesday, February 22, 2023
  • Ends1:00 pm on Wednesday, February 22, 2023

Summer can be a time of unlimited opportunity for students. They can travel to unexplored places while studying abroad or gain hands-on experience through fieldwork or internships. The summer months offer students the chance to advance their careers and skill sets with new experiences.

Since 2018, The Boston University Global Development Policy (GDP) Center has sponsored a select group of qualified Boston University Masters and/or PhD students to participate in unpaid internships or PhD students to conduct field research for a dissertation project. As part of the Summer in the Field Fellowship Program, the GDP Center provides stipends of $6,000 to $8,000 for students to take advantage of unpaid internship opportunities or field research that would otherwise be financially unfeasible. Previous Summer in the Field Fellows have participated in a variety of activities from conducting research on bureaucracy and state capacity building in southern China to exploring the implications of women in leadership in Meghalaya, India for women empowerment and gender equity.

Join us on Wednesday, February 22 from 12:00-1:00 PM EST for an information session and discussion with former Summer in the Field Fellows to learn more. Pizza and drinks will be provided. The event is limited to Boston University students only.
