The AGS Lehrman Summer Fellows Program provides summer stipends to undergraduate students pursuing traditional and non-traditional internship and research opportunities. The program is designed to encourage undergraduate students who have demonstrated leadership and academic achievement to pursue a creative summer work plan related to the mission of AGS.
The Duke Program in American Grand Strategy will fund a limited number of stipends to support internships and distinctive research experiences in summer 2024. Stipends will be granted to students whose summer projects relate to Grand Strategy and to themes of the American Grand Strategy Program. Priority will be given to students who do not have access to other departments or programs’ funds. While monetary amounts may vary, we do not expect to award more than $2,000 per student except in unusual circumstances.
The AGS Summer Fellows Program is designed to encourage undergraduate students who have demonstrated leadership and academic achievement to pursue a creative summer work plan related to the mission of the Duke Program in American Grand Strategy. American Grand Strategy is the collection of plans and policies by which the leadership of the United States mobilizes and deploys the country’s resources and capabilities, both military and non-military, to achieve its national long-term goals in light of global tensions, threats, and opportunities. When applying to this summer fellowships, applicants should explain how the internship or summer project in question will enhance their understanding of American Grand Strategy in theory or in practice.
Students can apply for funding to do “traditional” internships at think-tanks, governmental offices, or business, or they can design their own creative summer project. Remote internships are eligible for funding.
Applications deadline EXTENDED to Sunday, March 3, 2024 at 11:59 PM. For more information about the Lehrman Summer Fellows program please contact the AGS Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
