Karen M. Gil Internship Program


The Karen M. Gil Internship Program offers UNC undergraduate Psychology and Neuroscience majors an opportunity to deepen their understanding of psychology and develop professional skills. The Gil Internship Program places students at a worksite in the Triangle area, offers a monthly stipend, and a 3-hour course credit towards the Psychology or Neuroscience major. The program is funded by a generous gift from anonymous donors.

This prestigious, highly-competitive program accepts 10-13 applicants per semester based on qualifications and achievement. Please meet our current cohort of Gil Interns and learn about their internship experiences by reading their blog posts on our Confessions of a Giller Blog. Interested in applying to the program?
