Internships & Summer Programs


Johns Hopkins University Humanities Collaboratory for Community College Students

Johns Hopkins University will host a fully-funded summer research program for community college students working in humanities disciplines from June 1-August 6, 2022.  The program is nationally recognized, highly pedagogically innovative, and a proven success. It’s funded by the Mellon Foundation and will provide students with a generous summer stipend of $5750 for ten weeks of full-time mentored research. Required on-campus housing at our beautiful Baltimore campus is included in the award, in addition to the stipend at no cost to the student. The program is nationally recognized, highly pedagogically innovative, and a proven success. It boasts an over a 90% transfer rate for past participants, hundreds of thousands in post-program scholarships and awards, growth in academic rigor and expertise, and exceptional graduate school placement. Students can work in ANY area of the humanities and many past students have been general studies students. This program provides students with a team of mentors and a student-centered experience focused on research modeling and collaboration. Students’ projects are completely individual and customized to their interests; they do not need to have a topic prior to entering the program, as they will spend the first two weeks developing their topics. In addition to the application, students will enter an interview round before final selection. Applications are online now through February 15, 2022 and are open to any current community college students with an interest in research in the humanities. Please see the  website for more information, including two videos produced by previous years’ participants detailing the impact of the program.
