More About PhD Internships in the Humanities
Interns bring to their roles the array of skills developed during their PhD training, including research and writing and area-based expertise. Internships run for approximately 10 weeks. Interns serve in their roles for 20 hours per week and receive a $6,500 stipend. These internships require residency* at the internship site, and we expect that the graduate students holding them will not hold any additional BU-supported summer teaching, internships, or fellowships in the relevant summer.
Applications include a CV, a personal statement, and two letters of recommendation and are processed through the InfoReady Review portal. Applicants should request recommendations through the InfoReady portal; please allow adequate time for your recommenders. Applicants will be evaluated in terms of their academic accomplishments (including degree progress) and the appropriateness of their professional goals for this program.
Please note that in the application you will identify your first and second choice internship institutions. You will be asked to explain both choices.
Recipients are announced by early March.
