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.
