Two Receive Winant Fellowships For Summer Internships With State Non-Profits

Two UNH undergraduates were recently awarded Winant fellowships, which will allow them to spend their summer working for Granite State nonprofit organizations that assist families and communities.

Established in memory of the late New Hampshire governor John G. Winant, the fellowship program provides a $3,250 stipend for each New Hampshire student selected. Students are selected through a competitive process based on academic merit, the work they propose to do, the strength of their commitment to public service, and how the internship relates to their career goals.

“We are very pleased to support this work, which allows students to focus on gaining valuable experience through their internships and supports New Hampshire non-profits by offering their interns income that would not otherwise be available,” said Cynthia “Mil” Duncan, founding director of the Carsey Institute.
