AGHI humanities summer internship grant opportunity for undergrads

The Alexander Grass Humanities Institute is pleased to announce support for Hopkins humanities students with an unpaid internship during the summer of 2022; internships can be entirely remote or in-person. Stipends will be awarded based on merit and need. The goal of these awards is to reduce financial pressure on students, allowing them to explore professional opportunities by choosing the best possible summer experience.

Application deadline has been extended to May 31.


The grantee must be a declared humanities major or, if a freshman, a student who has demonstrated clear intent to pursue a humanities major through coursework, meetings with program faculty, extracurricular activities, etc. Only current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are eligible.

Awards will be given only to students who can demonstrate that they will be engaged in a remote or in-person unpaid summer experience of significant merit and time commitment. Students must also work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
