The two Macy interns will be selected on the basis of those characteristics associated with John Macy: high intellectual ability, a capacity for sustained effort in difficult tasks, strong ethical standards, an ingrained sense of duty, and commitment to public service as a worthy career  During the past 25 years the Macy interns have worked at the Government Accountability Office.

There will be a number of very specific requirements such as a detailed budget, a letter of commitment from a sponsor, and an essay (2 – 3 pages) describing your interest in public policy/public service.

There is a remote possibility that the GAO might be able to accept interns during the summer of 2012. The Macy Interns are responsible for finding their own internships in public policy and/or public service. The Macy Internship will no longer be restricted to Washington, DC.

Application deadline: March 6, 2012.

The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship is a competitive national program that provides college graduates the opportunity to work in Washington, DC, with one of twenty-seven participating public-interest organizations focusing on international security issues.  The program has awarded 134 fellowships since its inception in 1987 and is offered twice yearly, in the spring and fall.  It lasts from six to nine months and provides a stipend, health insurance, and travel costs to Washington.  The Scoville Fellowship does not award grant or scholarship money to students.

Scoville Fellows may undertake a variety of activities, including research, writing, education, and advocacy in support of the goals of their host organization and may attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and Congressional hearings.  Fellows have written articles, blogs, fact sheets, letters to the editor, op-eds and reports, organized talks and conferences, and been interviewed as experts by the media.  Former Scoville Fellows work for U.S. and international NGOs, the Departments of State and Defense, members of Congress and academia, and attend graduate school in political science or international relations, following their fellowships.

Students interested in peace and security issues should visit the Scoville website at www.scoville.org.  Although the majority of Scoville Fellows have received college degrees in political science, government, international relations, history, or peace studies, we do not require any specific major.  There is no application form; application requirements are listed on our website, as are links to the websites of each of the participating groups and information on the work of current and former Scoville Fellows.  The next application deadline is October 3, 2011 for the spring 2012 fellowship.

All U.S. citizens, as well as non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. who have an appropriate work permit, are eligible to apply; foreign nationals living outside the United States are not.

The Environmental Studies Program is pleased to announce our Mellon Foundation Internships for the Summer and Fall 2009. The internships are for students to do research under the guidance of a faculty mentor on projects directly concerned with Environmental Studies. These internships are available to students and faculty across the entire University. Environmental Studies is more encompassing than Environmental Sciences but your application must relate to environmental issues.

Internships are for a duration of 10 weeks and carry a stipend of $3,900. The Summer program runs from May 27th – July 31, 2009. Internships during the Fall run the length of the semester.

The student application, can be downloaded from the Environmental Studies Certificate Program website. It requires two short letters of recommendation. In addition to recommending the student, the faculty mentor must briefly (1-2 paragraphs) explain the project, its importance and relevance, if any, to her/his research program. However, student projects that are not part of their faculty mentor’s research program are welcomed and will be given full consideration as long as their faculty advisor agrees to mentor the research and vouches for the importance of the project. Letters of recommendation may either be sent to Ms. Marinelli through campus mail or by email (pdf preferred) to vmarinelli@wesleyan.edu.

The applications, including statements by faculty, will be judged by a committee.

The deadline for applications Friday, March 20, 2009, allowing us to announce internship candidates by Monday, March 23rd. Student applications are to be delivered to Ms. Valerie Marinelli, Administrative Assistant, Environmental Studies, Room 327, Exley Science Center. Students currently abroad may submit their applications by fax (860.685.3781) or by email (vmarinelli@wesleyan.edu)
