Public Humanities Undergraduate Fellows
The Public Humanities Undergraduate Fellows is a highly selective program run by the NEH Distinguished Teaching Professor at BU that offers stipend-supported summer internships that will help students create a bridge between their academic accomplishments and their future careers.
Fellows are part of a small group of BU humanities majors who will help chart the future of the humanities beyond academia by sharing their work experiences, their intellectual perspectives, and their passion.
With summer internships at its core, this program creates a community of students and alumni actively engaged in analyzing and communicating the importance of the humanities in areas including government, business, and the not-for-profit sector. Together, we ask and demonstrate how humanities majors can use their skills and talents as global citizens in a rapidly shifting economy.
Internships are in different organizations around Boston, in areas including technology and design, social services, digital storytelling, education, economic development, the arts, corporate leadership training, and international diplomacy.
