Summer Internships

Summer Internships for Students in Linguistics

and Related Disciplines

There are several competitive internship programs for graduate and undergraduate linguistics students, particularly for students interested in cognitive science and computational linguistics. Many of the internships are funded by the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates program. Internships typically offer a stipend. Some offer living arrangements as well. They all offer wonderful experience in being a practicing linguist, cognitive scientist, or computational linguist. Montclair State Linguistics has sent students to internships at Johns Hopkins and the University of Pennsylvania in past years, and we encourage you to keep up the tradition.
