Two GWSB students, Alissa Medley and Richard Woodhull, are among 37 recipients of the first awards granted by GW’s Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund.
The University’s Career Services Advisory Council awarded the grants to students pursuing unpaid internships that will enhance their career opportunities. The aim is to help students accept internships that they otherwise couldn’t take due to financial constraints.
The awards, totaling $50,000 in funding provided by parent and alumni donors, were given to graduate and undergraduate students. Woodhull and Medley are global MBA candidates.
The grant program was announced in March. More than 170 undergraduate and graduate students applied for awards, with the awardees representing 20 different fields of study.
