Duke Susan Tifft Student Internships & Research Grants

Grants to undergraduate students to cover expenses for research related to journalism or media studies. 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 alumni donors, awards 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) students enrolled in the Journalism Policy & Media Studies Certificate Program, and engaged in unpaid or low-paid internships. Students can receive up to $5,000 in financial support.
