Two Princeton seniors, Robin Williams and Katie Grim, have been awarded 2004 ReachOut 56 Fellowships, which provide each winner with a $25,000 grant to undertake a yearlong public service project after graduation.

Williams, a Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs major from Greensboro, N.C., will pursue a project that aims to promote the treatment of substance abuse as a health problem rather than a criminal activity.

Grim, a religion major from Bordentown, N.J., will manage a program in Newark, N.J., called Studioworks, which is for teenagers who possess a strong interest and demonstrated ability in the arts.

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.

More details are available in a news release.
