Buchanan Blvd., Box 90950, Durham, NC 27708 Critical Information for International Students Unless your internship is required by your curriculum, you will have to consider whether you want to use your OPT (optional practical training) time toward an internship. Please consult the Visa Services Office to learn more and weigh your options. [http://www.visaservices.duke.edu/] Funding Your Experience Several departments and divisions at Duke may have funds available to support students’ experiential learning. Inquire with your major or pre-major advisor, directors of undergraduate students in majors you are considering, other faculty, etc. Some sources to consider: • Career Center Internship Funding • DukeEngage • Duke Global Health Institute • Hart Leadership Program • Office of Undergraduate Research Support • Office of Scholars and Fellows scholarship database Develop a Plan B for funding: part-time jobs and living at home are both viable options. Build up your savings through a part-time job during the semester, at the beginning of the summer before your internship begins, or during the period of your internship (eg, weekends). Many employers who cannot afford to pay interns are willing to consider flexible work arrangements to enable you to have a successful internship while earning money to pay for rent, transportation, and other necessities. Tip: If you receive financial aid, contact your financial aid officer to discuss options that may apply to you to waive your summer earnings requirement. Note: Some employers offering unpaid internships require course credit. Find out early if this applies to you! See below for more information on obtaining course credit at Duke. Course Credit for Internships Duke grants credit for internships that qualify as a part of academic programs (e.g., Public Policy Studies). When an internship is not required by a student’s academic program, direct academic credit cannot be given solely on the internship experience; however, students may seek approval from the appropriate department for an independent study course that would include learning derived from the internship. Credit is then awarded by the supervising professor and will become a part of the student’s academic record. This arrangement has been successful for many students and is supported by the academic sector of the University. Because students must seek formal support from a supervising professor, considerable advanced planning is strongly advised.
