In addition to the student experience grant, the Connected PhD program supports doctoral students by providing internships in higher education administration at Brandeis University. GSAS collaborates with a variety of offices around the University to develop internship opportunities.

PhD students in Anthropology, English, History, Musicology, Music Composition and Theory, Near Eastern and Judaic Studies (NEJS), Politics, and Sociology may apply for any of these positions. The internships provide meaningful supervision and professional development, a project with a concrete deliverable, and the ability to continue work on-campus and remotely. The Connected PhD program funds the positions, each of which is paid at a $21 per hour rate, and successful candidates are selected by the host departments or units.
