Robert J. Abernethy established a funded summer internship program for Davidson College students at the Atlantic Council and Truman National Security Project. The program aims to provide students with meaningful experiences working in–and contributing to–the policy think tanks.
Each qualified student intern will receive a grant of $4,000 ($2,000 before beginning the internship, and an additional $2,000 after the internship concludes), provided the following conditions are met.
You must apply for internship positions at either organization through Handshake (login required). Each organization reviews applications, interviews and selects its own interns.
The application period opens in mid-January. Once you are placed with either organization, the Center for Career Development will contact you to finalize details regarding the internship grant.
Acceptance of an Abernethy Grant is, in turn, acceptance of the Davidson Honor Code. If any infractions are suspected, the student risks forfeiture of part or all of the award, and Honor Code charges.
