Research Internships

The Anna Julia Cooper Center offers several research internship opportunities. These positions are open to students at Wake Forest University.

Jaira Harrington (Politics & International Affairs)

Students interested in a research internship should contact Sara Kugler. Applications will be available at the beginning of the Fall semester.
