The Summer 2023 Internship Program provides a paid research and professional development experience for undergraduate students interested in population-focused graduate training and careers. Interns will work alongside CPC faculty fellows and graduate students on an ongoing Center-based research project for the course of the internship, gaining valuable exposure to the process of team-based population science research. The program also includes weekly professional development seminars and opportunities to hear about the wide variety of research taking place at CPC. This is considered a full-time internship (approximately 35/hours week), and includes a stipend of $4,500.

All applicants must meet the following criteria:

• Undergraduate students at UNC with junior or senior academic standing in Fall 2022
• From a group that is underrepresented (underrepresented minorities and/or first-generation college students) in the social, spatial, and/or health sciences, and/or those with a demonstrated commitment to diversity
• Strong academic record; minimum 3.3 cumulative GPA
• A minimum of 3 credit hours in basic statistics (excluding AP credit)
• Serious intent to pursue graduate (as opposed to professional) studies

Applications should include a statement of interest, undergraduate transcripts, current resume or CV, and letter of recommendation from UNC faculty. Applications instructions can be found online at
