Graduate Student Training Enhancement Grants (GSTEG) are intended to expand the opportunities for graduate students to augment their core research and training by acquiring additional skills, knowledge, or experiences that are not available at Duke and that will enhance their capacity to carry out original research. We believe such experiences will lead to better preparation/training, whether for academic positions or other career trajectories. Supported activities include:
- An internship with a community organization, government agency, NGO, or cultural institution, related to the student’s area of study (doctoral students only)
- Participation in a cognate training workshop
- A field research opportunity that includes specific training.
All current graduate students (post-undergraduate, including master’s, professional, and doctoral students) in any program at Duke University may propose graduate training enhancement activities, aside from summer internships, which are only available to doctoral students. All internships and cognate training experiences proposed must be performed outside of Duke (i.e., may not involve research, training, or other engagement with a Duke unit).
