Summer Field Research


Grad Student, Brian Smithson, conducts summer field research in Benin

Students will conduct preliminary research during the summers following the first and second year (funding provided by the University). We also encourage you to develop and submit grant proposals to various campus funders that support summer research (e.g. Center for International Studies, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Graduate School, etc.). All students must submit proposals for internal Duke summer funding for which they are eligible.
