The Rackham Doctoral Intern Fellowship Program allows doctoral candidates to pursue a fully supported internship as part of their graduate training. Internships offer students a mentored experience in non-academic settings that is tailored to meet the needs of partner organizations. This initiative provides a crucial experiential learning opportunity for students, while demonstrating the value of their advanced abilities and knowledge to employers in a wide array of fields.
Fall and Winter Term
Rackham Fall and Winter Doctoral Intern Fellowships offer doctoral candidates three options for pursuing internships for 20 hours per week during the academic term.
Rackham Spring/Summer Doctoral Intern Fellowships offer doctoral students at any stage in their Rackham program three options for funding full or part time internships between May and August.
If you have secured an internship by applying directly to an employer or worked to propose your own with an organization, you can apply for funding to complete the internship. Learn more about student-identified internships.
