AMSTUD Summer Research Internships at Stanford

The Program in American Studies, with generous sponsorship from VPUE, offers internships every summer working with various AMSTUD faculty on their research.  Students who participate in the summer program will receive $7,500* to cover wages and living expenses during a 10-week period (some time between graduation and the end of August).  The salary is calculated at $18.75 per hour for 40 hours each week. During the 10 weeks of the program the student will work 25-30 hours per week on research projects being pursued by the faculty member and an additional 5-10 hours per week pursuing personal research and education goals and opportunities, such as taking classes or engaging in research for an honors project.  Faculty mentors are expected to meet frequently with their research assistants and guide them in the research they will undertake.  An email soliciting applications will go out early in winter quarter.

*Note: Funding is adjusted yearly to account for inflation/cost of living.  Please contact Amy Potemski ( for the most up-to-date information.
