Funding Opportunities

Internship Program

VH@Duke Internships provide Duke doctoral students in the humanities and interpretive social sciences with exposure to work experiences, organizations and professions relevant to their scholarly interests. These are stipended positions and are meant to replace other compensated work (such as research assistantships) during the period of the internship. See 2018 interns and 2017 interns.

Ph.D. Innovation Grants

VH@Duke Ph.D. Innovation Grants provide support to departments in the humanities and interpretive social sciences to develop and test curricular changes designed to enhance the preparation of graduate students for careers inside and outside of academia. Departments can request funding over a one- or two-year period. See 2017-2018 grantees.
