AGHI Humanities Summer Internship Grants for Undergrads

AGHI is pleased to announce support for Hopkins humanities students with an unpaid internship during the summer of 2024; 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.


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, extra-curricular activities, etc. Only current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are eligible.

Awards will only be given 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.
