Twelve Princeton students have received $3,500 awards as part of a new program to support summer internships focused on public service.
The University's Pace Center instituted a program this spring to support students who obtain summer internships with government entities, nongovernmental organizations or other nonprofit groups. Funding was provided by the Pace Center and the Princeton Environmental Institute.
The program is open to undergraduate students who will return to campus in the fall. It requires that students give a public presentation in the fall about their internship experiences.
The students are completing eight-week internships with a variety of organizations. They are:
- Flannery Becker '09, International Relations Council, Kansas City, Mo.
