Cowen Scholars Internship Program
In this year-long internship program, the Cowen Institute pairs graduate students from Tulane University (named “Cowen Scholars”) with public high schools in New Orleans to support projects focused on improving college readiness, decreasing dropout rates, and easing the transition from high school to college. In return for the work completed by a Cowen Scholar over the course of the academic year, the Cowen Institute provides the intern with a competitive financial stipend of $6,000 per semester. Cowen Scholars are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week on assigned projects.
For Graduate Students
