The Howard R. Swearer Center for Public Service has announced the Messing Family Public Service Fellowship, a new fellowship focused on public education, established with a gift from Brett S. Messing ’86 and Marla B. Messing. The Messing Family Fellowship will provide funding for undergraduate internships in public education that advance students’ understanding of U.S. public education and their own interest and career possibilities in education. The fellowship is a collaboration of the Swearer Center for Public Service, the Career Development Center, and the Education Department. The inaugural awards will be made later this summer for internships in the coming academic year. Over time, the fellowship is expected to fund six to nine students each year for academic year and summer internships.
