Ten Duke University Ph.D. students have received Graduate Student Training Enhancement Grants (GSTEG) for Summer 2022 from the Office of the Provost.
Ph.D. students were invited to propose off-campus internships that would amplify their intellectual agendas beyond the offerings within their programs or elsewhere at Duke.
The recipients will be provided with a stipend as well as coverage of fringe and the summer health fee. They will also take part in an experiential learning workshop taught by Maria Wisdom or Rachel Coleman. Together the students will reflect on their time with their hosts and discuss implications for their intellectual trajectory and career aspirations.
