Summer Internship Program

CUNY Dominican Studies Institute
2022 Summer Internship Program



CUNY DSI’s Summer Internship Program provides graduate and undergraduate students with meaningful research experience in the field of Dominican Studies. Participants work collaboratively and under the guidance of CUNY DSI scholars from the institute’s research team and Dominican Library and Archives.

While at CUNY DSI, summer interns immerse themselves in foundational Dominican Studies texts, refine their research agenda, and develop a comprehensive research project with the support of the specialized resources and staff at CUNY DSI’s Dominican Library and Archives. While developing their research project, summer interns receive guidance and feedback from a small array of researchers housed at the CUNY DSI alongside Director, Dr. Ramona Hernández.

The CUNY DSI Summer Internship Program is an unpaid internship. Accepted students are highly encouraged to pursue outside funding such as scholarships, fellowships, and Federal Work Study.
