Seniors win ReachOut 56 Fellowships for 2003
Posted February 28, 2003; 10:57 a.m.
Seniors Jessica Munitz and Daniel Stover have been awarded 2003 ReachOut 56 Fellowships, which provide each winner with a $25,000 grant to undertake a yearlong public service project after graduation.
ReachOut 56 is an effort by Princeton's class of 1956 to help nonprofit organizations perform valuable public service. More than 100 members of the class have contributed funds to the program, which is involved with a number of other public service activities in addition to granting the fellowships.
Candidates for these fellowships perform their own research to find a suitable public service organization in the United States that will agree in advance to make a position available. The candidate and the organization together devise a significant project or function for the year of the award.
Munitz plans to work on expanding the University's Sustained Dialogue program to other college campuses. Stover will work with Trenton, N.J.-based Isles Inc., a community development organization. The two winners were chosen from among seven applicants this year.
