Provost Graduate Student Fellowships

The Duke Provost Office seeks 1-2 graduate students for administrative internships. The positions are nine-month internships, running from September 1 (or earliest date possible) to May 31. Each internship provides an annual stipend (equivalent to the Graduate School-recommended Arts and Sciences nine-month stipend established each year), as well as tuition and mandatory fees. In addition, the Provost Office will pay the health insurance premium for recipients who enroll in the Duke Student Medical Insurance Plan. Each intern will work an average of approximately 19 hours per week, conducting research on topics related to projects and initiatives directed by the Provost Office.

Applicants must have completed the preliminary exam by the end of the spring semester before the period covered by the award and must expect to spend the majority of their time during the academic year funded by this award writing their dissertation.

For 2017-2018 funding period: The application cycle is open now. The Provost Office will consider applications on a rolling basis beginning September 15, 2017. Award recipients will be notified as soon as possible thereafter.

For 2018-2019 funding period: Applications are being accepted from October 2, 2017, to November 17, 2017.
