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. Cowen Scholars are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week on assigned projects.

Apply here for a position during the 2013-14 school year. Applications are due by April 22, 2013.
