Spring 2024 Recipients

Overview Heading link

Increasingly, graduate students are seeking positions outside the traditional tenure-track professoriate. To this end, the Graduate College has greatly enhanced its career and professional development offerings to help graduate students consider new career options and to build translatable skills. The Provost’s Graduate Internship Award (PGIA) is part of this effort. The springtime competition incentivizes graduate students to independently identify one short (3-month) internship opportunity that might lead to employment following graduation. This internship program is limited to full-time students, in good academic standing, who are in a PhD or terminal master’s program.

NB: The “who is hiring?” section will be updated periodically.

On the importance of internships for doctoral students, see the growing literature below.
