How you link your studies to events in the "real world" matters.
Research internships give Haverford and Bryn Mawr students the opportunity to fully immerse themselves with issues of contemporary and historical significance while pursuing their passions.
The CPGC prefers to fund research that is related to a senior thesis. However, if there is a strong need to pursue research related to another stream of studies, students are welcome to present their ideas in a meeting with the relevant program manager.
Students who have received funding in the past have noted that the experience greatly enhanced their understanding of the issues they were investigating and significantly enriched their thesis work.
CPGC research internships take a variety of forms, from archival research towards a senior thesis to participatory action research with social change activists. We have found that those students who base their research with NGOs or teams of academics actively pursuing research have a more productive and positive experience than those whose proposals are only for archival research.
Domestic Deadline: February 16 | International Deadline: February 9
International Deadline: February 9
This internship provides the opportunity for seniors to investigate issues of peace and social justice following their graduation from Haverford. Awards are given on a competitive basis to graduating seniors who make a compelling case for how this experience will inform and transform what they will be doing after graduation and how it will act as a bridge to what they intend to do after the internship is completed.
